A suspect is dead following an officer-involved shooting in Phoenix Tuesday morning, according to the Phoenix Police Department. 

The incident happened at around 6:30 a.m. at a home near 29th Avenue and Garfield Street

Phoenix police spokesman Jonathan Howard said their department and the Arizona Department of Transportation were conducting a search warrant. 

Three children and a woman were pulled out of the home when the male suspect, identified as 44-year-old Jose Aaron Gonzalez, fled back and went into hiding, according to Howard. 

Police then sent their robot to search for Gonzalez. The police robot found him hiding inside the home with a gun in his hand. 

When SWAT officers went inside the home, Gonazalez came out of hiding and pointed a gun at one of the officers, Howard said. 

Police say the officers then fired some shots, striking Gonzalez.
