Firefight with sheriff over sheriff’s death



The sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., died Thursday after being shot in the head by his own deputies, who were responding to a domestic dispute at his home.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said in a statement that deputies who responded to a report of a domestic disturbance on the evening of Jan. 6, when deputies were investigating an alleged domestic violence incident, came under fire by the suspect.

Arpaio said deputies fired a warning shot and that the suspect, later identified as John Doe, “fled” to the house, and deputies followed him.

Arpaio said the suspect’s vehicle and rifle were later recovered by the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff said deputies “believed they had probable cause to believe that the man in the vehicle was armed and dangerous,” and that one deputy fired a shot that struck the suspect in the chest, and the suspect ran from the house.

The suspect was pronounced dead at a hospital, according to MaricotacountySheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s department did not release a motive for the shooting.

Arrest records showed that deputies had a warrant out for his arrest for assault with a deadly weapon and other charges.

The Maricots are not alone in the U.S. in using excessive force in domestic disputes.

In the U., more than 200,000 people have been shot and killed by police in the last year, according a Washington Post analysis of FBI data.

In Arizona, there were 1,938 shooting deaths by police, compared to 933 homicides, according the analysis.
