    It was the same route Isabel Martinez walks, to the same end location, as the one lunch break she will never forget. Martinez couldn't help but laugh hysterically as she walked out to her silver sedan, parked in the empty dirt lot at 383 N. Commerce Park Loop in Tucson, and told the story to Tucson News Now.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities identified a bank robbery suspect who died in a shooting involving three Tucson Police officers.

Police said the man killed by the officers was Armando Alvarez, 44, who tried to get away on a bike after robbing the Chase Bank near Broadway and Wilmot Saturday.

He was found nearby, hiding in a homeowner's shed. When he came out, officers noticed he had an object in his hand and refused to drop it, according to a news release.

All three officers shot at Alvarez and he was later pronounced dead.

Detectives determined the object in Alvarez's hand was a tool, like a wrench.

All three officers were placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.
