Officer shoots and kills suspect who was holding a baby

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Scottsdale police are investigating after a officer shot and killed a man who was holding a baby in his arms.

It happened Tuesday night after police say the man threatened his neighbors with a gun, but so far, police have not located the gun, and it's unknown at this point whether the man was actually armed.

Tucson News Now learned that six police officers responded to the man's house and got into some sort of confrontation. That's when police say one of the officers shot the man.

We have also learned the officer who fired has been involved in six other shootings, all but one of them deadly, and cleared of any wrongdoing in those incidents.

The baby, who police believe was the man's grandchild, is now with other family members and is doing OK.
