One Dead, Two Injured After A Domestic Dispute That Lead To An Officer Involved Shooting In Paulden Tuesday Morning

State Route 89 was closed in Paulden for several hours after an officer involved shooting Tuesday morning. Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say the shooting took place at around 10:15 a.m. that stemmed from a domestic dispute that resulted in one man in critical condition, another person severely injured and the suspect fatally shot. Authorities say the suspect assaulted his brother with a hammer and fled a home on Bourbon Alley in Paulden to the nearby Dollar General store, where he robbed the store and assaulted the manager. He then drove to the Paulden Community Center where he threatened people with a gun. After leaving the center, YCSO deputies and Chino Valley Police found the suspect near the train trestle off of 89, not far from the Dollar General. Despite repeated warnings from law enforcement, the suspect raised his gun to officers and Chino Valley Police officers were forced to fire on the man. The brother was airlifted to Flagstaff Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The manager was transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries, where were not thought to be as severe.
