PHOENIX (AP) - A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in west Phoenix, according to police.

Police responded to a home around 1 p.m. Saturday after a caller said a man who tried to kill him a week ago had returned with a knife and was threatening him again.

Two officers arrived and reportedly saw the suspect sitting in a parked car in a driveway.

Officers approached the car to let the man know they were investigating an aggravated assault.

Police said when the officers asked the man to get out of the car, he rolled up the window and showed a gun.

Officers demanded the man to drop the gun, but say he raised the weapon and allegedly pointed it toward the officers.

Police said one officer broke the side window of the car to distract the man and two other officers opened fire.

The man later died at a hospital. His name and age weren’t immediately released.

Police said no officers were injured in the incident.
