LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - A Lake Havasu City man is dead after being shot by police following a domestic dispute.

Police say officers were called to a home late Sunday night.

They say 20-year-old Devin Christopher Scott allegedly caused a disturbance at a home where his girlfriend, his 2-year-old daughter and his father were inside.

Police say Scott left the residence before officers arrived. He returned before midnight and allegedly broke windows and exterior lights, banged on doors and entered the home before barricading himself in a bedroom.

Scott’s father called 911 and officers forced open the bedroom door to take Scott into custody.



Police say Scott was armed with a knife and aggressively approached officers before he was shot.

Scott was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Kingman police are investigating the shooting.
