CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Chandler police have identified a burglary suspect who had been driving a stolen vehicle before he was killed in an exchange of gunfire with officers.

Chandler police say no officers or bystanders were injured in Monday afternoon's incident that resulted in the fatal shooting of Kenneth Arnold Buck, 22.

The incident began when officers tried to stop a stolen vehicle that had apparently been involved in a burglary. The black pickup truck fled north on Hamilton Street and ran a red light at Ray Road.

According to police, the suspect pointed a gun out the rear window of the truck and fired several shots at the pursuing police vehicles.

The truck stopped at Knox Road and Exeter Street and Buck continued to fire at the officers, who returned fire.

The suspect was hit several times and died at the scene.

Police said the truck had a fictitious Indiana license plate and that the suspect had outstanding arrests warrants that included the caution that he was to be considered armed and dangerous.
