At just before Midnight yesterday evening Lake Havasu City Police Department responded to an address in the 2400 block of Everglades Drive for a “Domestic Violence” call for service with a report by a father that his son was breaking into the house through the window. An update to the call by dispatchers was that the window was broken, they could hear the son yelling before the call was disconnected with no answer on callback. The subject barricaded himself in the bedroom while the father and another subject exited the residence and awaited officers’ arrival. The next call out by officers to dispatch was “Shots Fired” followed by a request for medics to respond to the scene at 12:10 AM with “CPR in Progress”. Shortly after, 4 off-duty officers were called into service to take the place of the officers that were involved in the incident. Detectives responded to the scene to investigate.
This incident is still under investigation.
Our attempts to reach public information officers at Lake Havasu City Police Department were unanswered. We are unsure at this time if officers fired any shots, suspect pointed a weapon and/or fired at officers, or if the suspect took his own life. We will release more information as it becomes available.
UPDATE AT 10:00 AM – We spoke with Lake Havasu City Police Department’s Public Information Officer who confirmed it was an “Officer Involved Shooting”, and that Kingman Police Department is investigating the case and should be provided a Press Release shortly. We have reached out to Kingman PD to request that we are included as a recipient of further information in this case.
UPDATE at 10:23 AM – We just received a call from the Public Information Officer at Kingman PD who has advised Havasu Scanner Feed will be added to the media correspondences mailing list, and we will receive further information on this as soon as he gets an opportunity to meet with their detectives who had just arrived back at their Kingman office minutes before the call.
