Phoenix police: Officers fatally shoot wanted man

Updated:
PHOENIX -
Phoenix police say a man wanted in a domestic violence case is dead after being shot by officers because they believed he had pinned an officer in between two vehicles.

Sgt. Trent Crump says police received a tip Wednesday night that 37-year-old Raymond P. Majors, a suspect in an aggravated assault, was at a trailer park near I-17 and Indian School Road. 

According to police, detectives were told Majors was armed would either kill himself or shoot it out with the officers if approached.

When officers arrived, Majors was standing outside of a U-Haul truck, talking on the phone.

Police say he then jumped into the cab of the truck and suddenly accelerated into reverse.

According to police, they told Majors to stop and warned him that an officer was behind the U-Haul.

Majors allegedly ignored their commands and rammed into the front end of an unmarked police car, pushing it almost a car length away.

Police say two officers believed Majors had pinned an officer in between the vehicles and began to shoot at the suspect.

Phoenix firefighters declared him dead at the scene.

Crump says one officer suffered non-life threatening injuries.

    Astorino blasts Cuomo over Moreland Commission

    In 2013, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo created a state panel to investigate public corruption, called the Moreland Commission. But the governor is accused of interfering with investigations and compromising the commission's work. Republican Astorino, who is running against Cuomo, claimed Cuomo didn't hand over evidence to State Police. Astorino wants a special prosecutor to find out if any state and federal laws were broken.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.
