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.

      Anyone that has experienced a demonstration of the effectiveness of this (in military training or otherwise) will have no doubt that a 2 second shot of pepper spray would have ended any β€œthreat” perceived. The situation could have been neutralized without entering the room

    Hey maybe you should learn how to spell before you talk shit on the Officers when you have no clue on what even happened. Also if Officers were quick to shoot we would probably have an OIS every month or two in Havasu instead of one every one or two years so I don’t think that’s the case. But whatever immediately blame the Police Officer and support the sweet criminal that “didn’t do anything wrong”.

    I think God everyday that we live in a little to no crime rate community. We could be living in Phoenix where people are killed every day. So I thank God everyday when I read the obituaries that is just people dying from natural causes.

    I feel bad for the poor little 2 year old girl who was present during this incident & now has to grow up without a father because of his actions. Very sad situation. Prayers to the family!

      Her grandfather is probably very sorry for calling the police in the first place.

    So all you BLUE LIVES MATTER and ONLY SUPPORT COPS, DEPS and anything else that wears a badge. LISTEN UP NOW!! ALPHA FEMALE IN THE HOUSE MARRIED TO A SUPER ALPHA MALE DEPUTY. You have the right to think through things and do proper analysis and assessment before you ever shoot to kill. I’m also a PUBLISHED AND FAMOUS CLINICIAN BEFORE YOU WANT TO TALK SMACK ON ME Because I love a good fight and my PR people love to beat down and slap the fuck out of LOSERS that respond. I never see them!!! HAHA!!! Welcome to my world. Since the Lake Havasu, AZ PD is beyond stupid and ignorant, I personally have at least 6 PD calls since I moved back here March 13, 2016 and have YET to ever ever ever receive a DETECTIVE CALL or FOLLOW UP. STAND DOWN. DO YOU GET WHOM YOU ARE TALKING TOO?. I am SUPER RICH (mainly self made but daddy’s dollars did help) and a DAUGHTER OF A MULTI MILLIONAIRE and I am a SELF MADE MULTI MILLIONAIRE MYSELF. You all make me sick LHC PD and all of the TRUE Blue Lives Matter, personal friends and family of the Tustin Police Department, and Orange County Sheriff Department are sickened by your disgusting lack of ability to know true police or detective work. My TEN LAWYERS and MULTIPLE MULTI MILLIONAIRES AND MULTI BILLIONAIRES are all on notice by me and will be suing the FUCK out of this useless police department. Stand down now and learn true police work so you can protect ME, a fully disabled woman with a FULL TIME RESCUE GIANT GERMAN SHEPHERD. Get it, losers???

      You write like you suffer from bi-polar Jennifer. After the first two sentences, I stopped.

    I am so sad to hear of this. A young life gone, a single father, Devan raising his daughter with the help of his father… Killed from what I understand due to him having a knife. I’m just wondering if rubber bullets or a tazor gun could have been used first? Wasn’t there…. but have known Devan for some time and also his father, very sad that a life was lost! Devan wasn’t a big guy by any means and I understand things happe, not passing judgement on anyone but devistated to hear that Devan was shot and killed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Devans dad… I pray for his baby daughter that he loved so very much. What a very sad day it is. God bless.

      Yes very sad. People need to THINK THINK THINK before calling police regarding a domestic dispute. Things can often go bad, much more worse, than if the family members having the dispute can find a resolution themselves. The little girl’s grandfather is probably very very sorry for calling the police on his son Devan.

    Sadly the kingman pd will rule it as justified as they have in the past. If the man had a knife why didn’t the officer just use the tazer gun on him its not like the man had a gun. The officer could’ve taken the man in custody after subduing him. Who knows i could be wrong.

    A very sad day! Seems to be another way to take down a person with a knife! A baby lost her father and a dad lost his only son over a knife!!
    WOW!

    • Tiarra Sitzer Reply

      Sorry not sorry but maybe he should have not had a weapon and talked it out like a normal adult. Yes this is sad but could have been avoided. Think about what the officers have to go through emotionally when dealing with these situations. It is not easy on them at all!!

    • Karen Reply

      No one mentions any use of a BILLY club. That would have broken his hand, got rid of the knife and put him in custody. WHY WHY WHY shoot a kid, weighing maybe 120 lbs with 6 cops in a 10×10 room??? Are you kidding me?

    Amazing how Havasu has become so quickly with our PD to “shoot first”!!! What happened to negotiating the situation or communication? Or even using a Razer before a bullet? Or even a bean bag bullet or those net things? For God’s sakes to just automatically shooting someone? SMH real friggin hope they sleep well at night with this one, specially with the thought of a little 2 year old daughter having to grow up with the nightmares of what happened to her daddy on fathers day. Not only that but to not grow up with him thru her mile stones in her life period. Shame on them. My prayers ‘re with that little girl and her grandpa. And R.I.P. to her daddy!
