MARANA, Ariz. - A domestic violence suspect has died after Marana Police officers shot him on Oct. 12.

Marana Police Officers and Northwest Fire Crews gave medical care to Rucker. However, he died at the scene. 

The department said none of the officers involved were injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
