KINGMAN - A deputy shot and wounded a reportedly combative man this morning in the 2900 block of Packard Avenue in the Kingman area.

Details are slim, but it appears the deputy shot the man during a scuffle in which the suspect got a hold of the deputy's baton and attempted to strike him.

According to Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter, relatives of the suspect reported the person was possibly under the influence of drugs and was acting erratically and threatening family members.

The suspect was combative and the deputy tased him several times, which had no apparent affect, according to Carter.

The deputy and the suspect physically struggled, she said. The man grabbed the deputy's baton, said Carter, and attempted to hit him with the weapon. The suspect reportedly ignored several commands to drop the baton before the deputy drew his weapon and fired.

The MCSO requested the Bullhead City Police Department to conduct the investigation into the officer-involved shooting to ensure impartiality.

The deputy has been placed on paid administrative leave.

The name and age of the suspect, where he was wounded and his condition are not known at this time. Carter said more information would be made available as the investigation continues.
