PHOENIX (AP) — Police on Tuesday released the names of a man who was fatally shot after a domestic violence incident in Phoenix that left a woman dead and a teenager injured.
They said 53-year-old Paul Sarver and 46-year-old Shannon Hersh died while a 13-year-old boy remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Police were called out to a neighborhood about 10 p.m. Sunday after multiple calls about a fight at a home.
When officers arrived, they reported finding a man outside of the house who said he had a gun.
Police said the man then pointed what appeared to be a gun at the officers, who opened fire.
The man later identified as Mr. Sarver was pronounced dead at the scene.
A black hard-shell eyeglasses case was used as a simulated weapon and was found next to Mr. Sarver, according to police.
Officers went inside the house and found Ms. Hersh and the teenage boy with life-threatening injuries, but it’s unclear if Mr. Sarver shot them.
Police said the woman and boy were taken to a hospital in critical condition and Ms. Hersh was later pronounced dead.
