Critical Incident Briefing: September 10th, 2022 – 39th Avenue and Cactus Roadhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/24959/23/2022 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IetHaJZFp8wCritical Incident Briefing: September 10th, 2022 – 39th Avenue and Cactus Road<div class="ExternalClass2A33537CA85B4A8E9FEC3832C2F97A43"><html> <p>​​<strong style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.</strong></p><p> <br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an in-custody death which occurred on September 10<sup>th</sup>, 2022.</p> <p>This incident occurred in the area of 39<sup>th</sup> Avenue and Cactus Road near the employee parking lot entrance of the Phoenix Police Cactus park precinct. Phoenix Police 911 operators received several calls saying a man was armed with a samurai sword and striking the police station fence near the employee gate. </p> <p>The man was later identified as 40-year-old Aaron Baughman.</p> <p>Witnesses saw Baughman walking to the fence by the employee entrance of the precinct and pulling out a sword from his waist band. Baughman then began hitting the fence with the sword for several minutes. </p> <p>A few minutes later, a two-man patrol unit arrived, and the officers got out of their car. Baughman began to move towards the officers with the sword raised. The officers ordered Baughman to drop the sword but he continues in their direction. This is when the officer involved shooting occurred.</p> <p>After the shooting, Baughman remained on the ground as a vehicle pulled up. A man driving the vehicle got out and began walking toward Baughman. The officers gave the man multiple commands to stop. The man did and he was detained. It was later determined he was Baughman's father.</p> <p>Officers provided aide to Baughman until fire personnel arrived. </p> <p>Baughman was transported to the hospital where he died from his injuries.</p> <p>The sword used by Baughman was recovered on scene. The officers involved in this shooting have been with the department for two years and are assigned to the Cactus Park Precinct.</p> <p>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. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.</p> <p>Public records law requires redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. That is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.​<br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>Video
