Preliminary Information: 

Kingman, AZ – On Sunday evening, May 14, 2017, at about 7:02 p.m. the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) contacted the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) to request assistance with a pursuit of a stabbing suspect driving a pickup truck.  MCSO reported that the suspect had stabbed two people prior to fleeing. MCSO informed the troopers their deputies were northbound on SR93 and asked that troopers assume command of the pursuit if it reached I-40.

 

As the suspect entered I-40, going westbound from the SR 93 junction, he began making erratic lane changes, endangering those traveling on the interstate. As requested, troopers assumed command of the pursuit.  As the pursuit continued on I-40, troopers, along with officers from the Kingman Police Department, set up road spikes in three locations on I-40.

 

After striking two sets of road spikes, the suspect exited I-40 at Andy Devine Avenue and began traveling southbound in the northbound lanes, with troopers, deputies, and officers following on the southbound side.  The pickup then made a U-turn, driving northbound on Andy Devine Avenue, continuing to flee from law enforcement vehicles.  A Kingman Police Officer and a trooper discharged their firearms at the suspect’s vehicle and the suspect and vehicle were struck during the exchange. The suspect died at the scene.

 

The Arizona Department of Public Safety is conducting both an administrative and criminal investigation of this incident. This is the information available at this time.  The investigation is ongoing.
