SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Scottsdale officers shot and killed a man armed with a shotgun outside a Scottsdale condominium complex Sunday night.

The man was identified Monday as 35-year-old Anthony Mascarino.

The suspect had been arguing with a family member at their residence at 8055 E. Thomas Rd. when he fired the shotgun inside the condo, Scottsdale police Officer David Pubins.

Mascarino then went outside and fired the shotgun multiple times, Pubins said.

When officers arrived, the man pointed the shotgun at officers and three officers fired their weapons, striking the man at least once, Pubins said.

Mascarino was taken to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn Medical Center, where he died around 8:15 p.m., Pubins said.

No officers or other witnesses were injured during this confrontation.
