Posted: Updated:

An armed man was shot and killed by Mohave County sheriff's deputies after he reportedly fired shots at his neighbor.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter said deputies were called to a neighborhood in Golden Shores at around 7 p.m. Monday after a report of a man shooting at a woman who lives next door to him.

When the two deputies arrived to the 4500 block of Park Drive they were confronted by a man with a gun and shots were fired, Carter said. The man was shot and was taken to Valley View Medical Center where he died.

The deputies were not injured in the incident and both are now on paid administrative leave while the Lake Havasu Police Department investigates the incident.
