BUCKEYE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A man is dead and a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputy has minor injuries following a shooting late Friday night.
The incident occurred just before midnight near 209th Avenue and Narramore Road.
MCSO said they were responding to a domestic disturbance in the Rainbow Valley area.
When they arrived, two deputies contacted the suspect, later identified as 39-year-old Juan Torres, in the backyard of the residence.
MCSO said that Torres then threw a large wrench and struck one of the deputies.
The suspect then approached the deputies with a hammer and both deputies then discharged their service weapons, striking Torres.
Cindy Bybee lives down the street and said she heard shots fired.
"It was just like the bang, bang the pop sounds you get," said Bybee. "It wasn't like really quick that I remember. You just hear the bang, bang, and it's like an echo. I think from what I can remember maybe two, maybe three that were fired."
Torres was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"I’m sorry it happened to them," said Bybee. "Bad things happen, and we don’t know the mental state of people or why they do things, but it’s sad they lost a life as well."
No other information has been released.
The case is under investigation.
