Death – Obituary

PHOENIX — A man was shot and killed by Buckeye police following a domestic dispute on Sunday, authorities said.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired around 3 p.m. near Verrado Way and Park Meadows Drive, the Buckeye Police Department said at a press conference Sunday night.

When police arrived, they found two adult men, father and son, fighting on the ground of the driveway.

An officer deployed his patrol rifle toward the son kneeling over his father on the ground, but he didn’t comply with his commands and at that time, the officer saw a knife in the son’s hand, police said.

He refused to drop the knife and the officer fired in defense of the man on the ground, police said.

The suspect died at the scene while the father is in stable condition with multiple gunshot wounds. 

Officers recovered the knife and a handgun on scene.

No indications have been made as to what led to the shooting. 

It was the first shooting of the year involving Buckeye police and 47th overall by law enforcement in the Valley, according to KTAR News 92.3 FM research.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
