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.
