TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department has confirmed the man shot by officers during a midtown officer-involved shooting Saturday afternoon has died.

Sgt. Pete Dugan, a department spokesman, said the man was struck multiple times by two TPD officers. Dugan said the officers involved in the shooting were officer Brendon Brumitt, a 4-year veteran with the department and Matthew Gustafson, who's been with the department for more than a year.

Dugan said the man's name is being withheld until detectives finish speaking with potential witnesses.

In a news release, Dugan said their homicide unit will conduct a criminal investigation into the incident and their Office of Internal Affairs will conduct a separate administrative investigation to examine the actions of the officers.

The shooting happened on North Stone Avenue and West Prince Road shortly after 5 p.m. at the exact same address as a homicide that happened Friday night.

Dugan said when officers got on the scene, they approached the man and a woman when the man suddenly tried running away and gunfire was exchanged.

He was then sent to Banner University Medical Center.

Dugan said he's unsure if this incident is related to Friday night's homicide but said that's what they're hoping to find out.

"Even the person that called us thought it was suspicious that we've had two people standing right near where a shooting had taken place the night before," Dugan said. "It appeared they were looking around the ground so, we wanted to come out here and see a couple things."
