Sword-wielding man fatally shot after approaching officers in Arizona

Authorities announced on Friday that a man who was brandishing a samurai sword and moving toward cops with it elevated was shot and killed by police earlier this month outside of a police precinct in Arizona. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, the incident took place on September 10 in the neighborhood of 39th Avenue and Cactus Road, which is located close to the entrance to the staff parking lot of the Phoenix Police Cactus Park Precinct.

According to the police, witnesses contacted 911 and reported that a guy took out a samurai sword from his belt and started beating the police station fence near the employee gate for many minutes. The police added that the man continued this behavior for several minutes.

According to the police, when two officers on patrol arrived at the site, the guy proceeded toward the cops with the sword raised and disobeyed several requests to drop the blade. This occurred after the officer ordered the suspect to drop the sword many times.

Then, the officers opened fire on the suspect, wounding him in the process.

Aaron Baughman, age 40, was subsequently determined to be the individual in question. Baughman was taken to the hospital in a critical condition, but he did not survive his injuries and passed away there.

Baughman was contacted by a different man who had just arrived at the site. The individual was instructed to halt by the officers, and then they apprehended him. After further investigation, it was discovered that he was Baughman’s father.

The samurai sword was found by the police at the location of the crime.
