A shooting in Yavapai County, Arizona that happened this past Saturday night on Jan. 20, has left a person dead. ABC 15 in Arizona published a story about the incident.
Yavapai County deputies said that they responded to a 911 call about shots being fired to a residence near Yuma Rd. and Road 3. The call to 911 came in at around 8:45 pm Arizona time. Upon arriving deputies discovered that a 59-year-old unidentified man had been shot.
The unidentified 59-year-old was in his pick-up truck. Emergency services arrived. They’re the ones who declared the individual dead.
Yavapai County deputies retrieved a warrant. In their second trip to the residence, they interviewed several witnesses for hours. After investigator interviews and evidence collection at the scene, authorities determined that self-defense is a factor in the continuing investigation.
Two males, both 48-years-old, had approached the pick-up truck driver. One of the males was visiting the homeowner at the residence. The pick-up driver had driven onto the property. He had become stuck in the homeowner’s garden.
Upon approaching the 59-years-old, the pick-up driver lifted a firearm and threatened the two men. The two men, who were both armed, claimed that they fired at the driver in self-defense.
The Yavapai County Sherriff’s Office has not made an arrest. The sheriff’s office hasn’t released the names of any of the parties involved.
