TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department responded to a barricade situation on Tucson's west side that turned into an officer-involved shooting.

Deputies responded to a residence in the 11000 block of West Massingale Road in the Picture Rocks area, for a domestic dispute on Monday, Oct. 16.

The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Luis David Flores, threw his mother out of her house and pointed a gun at her. He then barricaded himself inside the house.  

A containment area was set up and SWAT was called in, according to Deputy Cody Gress. They arrived on scene by 9 a.m. 

SWAT negotiators attempted to resolve the situation peacefully for over five hours, but Flores refused to surrender according to a PCSD release.

According to the release, Flores came out several times with a gun in his hand. Then, just after 2:30 p.m., he emerged from the residence with two guns, one in each hand. He refused multiple commands to drop the weapons before a SWAT deputy shot him.

SWAT Tactical Medical personnel rendered first aid before he was transported to Banner University Medical Center. He was later declared dead at the hospital.  

It is not known at this time if his mother was injured during the situation.
