Officer involved shooting ends with robbery suspect dead

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Tucson Police Department is investigating a deadly officer involved shooting. It happened near First Avenue and Roger Road, about a mile Southeast of the Tucson Mall.

The parking lot of Water Street Station in Midtown turned into a crime scene Friday afternoon after police shot and killed a man. Investigators say the suspect had just committed two aggravated assaults and then held up a Circle K clerk.

Police responded to the area of First and Roger after getting  a call of a man assaulting a woman, then another call about the same man allegedly pointing a gun at a person inside a car.

After a quick ground search, officers caught up with him and it's unclear what transpired after that.

The owner of a nearby liquor store says customers witnessed the whole thing. He says he's stunned to hear the news but is thankful his store was not a target.
