Critical Incident Briefing: May 29, 2022 – 24th Street and Cactus Roadhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2382Police6/10/2022 9:43:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/UN1KrQrOBOsCritical Incident Briefing: May 29, 2022 – 24th Street and Cactus Road<div class="ExternalClassF0673242ACBB4C3B8504ED30EDFC2522"><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 officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on May 29, 2022.</p> <p>This incident occurred in the area of 24th Street and Cactus Road when Phoenix Police received a call of a domestic dispute involving a firearm. The man with the firearm was later identified as Tony Brown. An adult female in the home placed a 911 call where she mentions that Mr. Brown has a firearm and has fired several shots in and around the home. </p> <p>While officers were en route to the call, they learned that Brown began shooting the firearm in the air. </p> <p>As officers arrived in the area, they staged a short distance away, and were able to hear Brown firing off rounds.</p> <p>Officers developed a plan to contact the subject, including deploying with a stun bag, which is a less lethal option, and drove to a location closer to the house. As they approached the residence, they found Brown outside still armed.</p> <p>Officers gave several commands to Brown to drop the gun, before he pointed the firearm at officers. That is when the officer involved shooting occurred.</p> <p>A team was organized and approached Brown following the shooting, but aid was unable to be rendered as he had died from his wounds.</p> <p>Officers at the scene located a firearm near the body of Brown.</p> <p>The officer involved in this incident has 4 years of service with the Phoenix Police Department and is assigned to the Desert Horizon 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.<br> <br>Public records law required 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> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice@phoenixpolicePolice Main PIOphoenixpd.pio@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/36/Police2.pngPhoenixPolice
