AVONDALE, Ariz. -

A man was shot and killed by an Avondale police officer after reportedly acting erratically inside a convenience store.

The shooting occurred at about 8 a.m. in the parking lot of a Circle K convenience store at the intersection of Avondale Boulevard and McDowell Road.

Avondale police say the man was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital for treatment after Tuesday morning's incident.
 
Police received a call about disorderly person inside the store and sent out a patrol car to the scene. The suspect displayed a weapon -- a knife and a Taser gun -- towards officers, who responded with deadly force.
 
The officer wasn't injured and will be placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure.
