Critical Incident Briefing – September 9, 2023 -85th Ave and Indian School Rdhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2869Police9/22/2023 10:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/7x9hbo-yaxY?feature=sharedCritical Incident Briefing – September 9, 2023 -85th Ave and Indian School Rd<div class="ExternalClassFD7085C3708E486C90B25763FCBD21E7"><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>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on September 9, 2023.  </p> <p>This incident began when officers responded to an emergency call of an aggravated assault in the neighborhood of 85th Avenue and Indian School Road.</p> <p>During the initial investigation, it was learned the victim was robbed of his car at gun point. </p> <p>Patrol officers worked with the victim and using the vehicle's GPS they tracked the car into the city of Glendale. The Phoenix Police Air Unit spotted the car as a man parked it and went inside a house near 8700 West Glendale Avenue.</p> <p>Officers contained the house and began negotiations. </p> <p>About 24 Minutes into the negotiations, the man came out of the house and walked to the end of the driveway. </p> <p>Officers continued to give the man commands at which time he pulled a handgun from his waistline and pointed it towards officers. It was at this time; three officers fired their duty guns and struck him.</p> <p>After the shooting, officers attempted to clear the property; however, they noticed a strong odor of gas coming from the inside of the house. Out of concerns for their safety, officers evacuated the immediate area.</p> <p>A team of officers with appropriate protective equipment assembled and completed clearing the house; noting a green propane canister had been left on. </p> <p>After the scene was safe, Glendale Fire Department responded and pronounced the man deceased.</p> <p>The gun displayed by the man was found on the ground next to him. It was determined to be a pellet gun resembling a semi-automatic handgun.</p> <p>All three officers involved in this incident are assigned to the Maryvale Estrella Mountain Precinct and have about six, seven, and eight years of service with the department respectively.</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 required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. This 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>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
