Deputy US marshals shoot, kill armed man in Flagstaff
FLAGSTAFF, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A man is dead after he was shot and killed by Deputy U.S. Marshals on Wednesday afternoon in Flagstaff. According to investigators, state and federal officials were working on an operation near 6th Avenue and Izabel Street, just north of Route 66. Deputy marshals were reportedly trying to arrest 25-year-old Michael John De Ubl when he pulled out a gun. Deputies then shot De Ubl, and he died at the scene. No deputy marshals or witnesses were hurt.
Officials say De Ubl had moved around between different states, but had recently settled in Flagstaff. This is the 27th officer-involved shooting outside of Maricopa County and the 75th overall in the state in 2022. The FBI is investigating.
