Viewer discretion is advised.</strong><br><br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on June 2, 2024. <br><br>This incident began in the area of 13th Street and Palm Lane when Phoenix police officers responded to a call of a subject with a gun in the area. The 911 caller told the operator a man was armed with a gun and trying to steal her boyfriend's motorcycle.<br><br>When officers arrived, they drove into an alley and saw a man matching the description. The man was sitting on a motorcycle with a gun in his hand. As the officers were getting out of their patrol car, the man raised and pointed the gun towards officers. Both officers responded by firing their guns at the suspect. Evidence found at the scene indicated the man did fire his gun. After the shooting, the suspect dropped the gun and officers moved up to provide medical aid until the fire department arrived. The suspect was taken to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.<br><br>There were no other injuries to any community member or officers.<br><br>The handgun used by the suspect was recovered on scene. One bullet casing from the suspect's gun was also located.  <br><br>Both officers involved in this incident are assigned to the Mountain View Precinct and have been with the department for six and four years respectively.<br><br>This incident is the subject of a criminal investigation to be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office. <br><br>It is also the subject of an administrative investigation. <br><br>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete.<br><br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
City of Phoenix Receives Findings Report from U.S. Department of Justice Investigationhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/3129Police6/13/2024 6:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3129/20240108_151306.jpgCity of Phoenix Receives Findings Report from U.S. Department of Justice Investigation<div class="ExternalClass160C2BCA2C234CC8AA5BCC8F9220CD87"><html> <p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;">The City of Phoenix (CoP) and Phoenix Police Department (PPD) are reviewing the findings from a nearly three-year investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;">City leaders and members of the community are eager to read the evidence and insights provided by the DOJ which support its findings. “We are taking all allegations seriously and are planning to review this lengthy report with an open mind," City Manager Jeff Barton said in a message to City employees. “Self-reflection is an important step in continuous improvement, and our Police Department has demonstrated a commitment to reform by making improvements to policy, discipline, internal investigations and training," Barton went on to say.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:Calibri;font-size:17.3333px;">As Phoenix city leadership has previously indicated, it is not in the best interest of residents to make any decisions that will affect public safety without adequate time to review the report. As stated to both the DOJ and residents of Phoenix, the City will take the necessary time to review the findings in detail before responding. The City of Phoenix has also issued a letter to the DOJ, <a target="_blank" href="/policesite/Documents/DOJ/Police_DOJ_Investigation_06-13-24.pdf">City of Phoenix Response to U.S. Department of Justice Report: June 13, 2024 (PDF)​</a>.​</span></p><p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;"> “We want to see not only what these individual incidents are that the Department of Justice refers to, but we also want to see whether it included policy change or whether it possibly included discipline, or other changes within the department as far as practices go," said Interim Police Chief Michael Sullivan.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;">The decisions made in response to the findings report will have long-term consequences for the City and its residents. For that reason, the City intends to take the necessary time to read and digest the report before any decisions are made.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:Calibri;font-size:17.3333px;">The Phoenix Police Department has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement by enhancing policy, accountability and training. The City of Phoenix highlighted these, and other improvements in a report titled <a href="/policesite/Documents/DOJ/PPD_RoadtoReform_January2024.pdf" target="_blank">The Phoenix Police Department: The Road to Reform (PDF)</a>.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:Calibri;font-size:17.3333px;">The City of Phoenix and Phoenix Police Department have cooperated with the DOJ's investigation for nearly three years. Thousands of requested documents and body worn camera videos have been provided, and access to trainings, interviews and ride-alongs were all granted by the City of Phoenix.<br></span></p><p><span style="font-family:Calibri;font-size:17.3333px;">The City of Phoenix looks forward to continued dialogue with the DOJ and hopes to identify an effective resolution to this investigation that is in the best interest of the City and the community.
