Pinal County Sheriffs fatally shoot suspect

ELOY - A Pinal County Sheriff deputy fatally shot a suspect after a chase that ended near State Route 87 and Interstate 10.

The suspects fled from deputies after attempting to pull them over, Pinal County Sheriffs spokesman Tim Gaffney said.

The suspects were driving a vehicle that matched the decription of a vehicle involved in an armed robbery at the MPassion Adult Boutique off Picacho Peak and I-10.

Gaffney said the suspect rammed the deputy's vehicle. Shot were exchanged between the deputy and the suspect.

One suspect died and the other was taken to the hospital. The deputy was not hit by gunfire, Gaffney said.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Baueu is holding a media briefing at 10 a.m. Monday for additional detail.
