PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Prescott have identified an armed man who was fatally shot by a police officer last weekend.

Police say 70-year-old Wayne Noel Simard was a part-time Prescott resident.

Officers were called to a home around 4 p.m. Sunday in reference to a report of someone firing multiple shots from a gun.

Police arrived to find a man firing rounds into occupied structures and in the direction of officers.

Negotiations with the suspect were started before police say the man confronted officers with a firearm.

The man was shot and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the Arizona Department of Public Safety is investigating the shooting.
