FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The second man involved in a police shooting in Flagstaff has died.

The Department of Public Safety says it was notified just before midnight Thursday that 20-year-old Preston Oszust died. Another 20-year-old man he was with, Marcus Gishal, died Wednesday at the shooting scene.

DPS says one trooper was shot in the left hand in an exchange of gunfire with the shooter.

They say a trooper tried to stop an SUV for a traffic violation Wednesday night, but the vehicle sped off.

The driver stopped at a residential area where he and a passenger abandoned the SUV and ran off.

Troopers later located the two Flagstaff men and one of the suspects reportedly opened fire.

This story has been corrected to reflect that the death notification was made just before midnight Thursday.
