GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- A Maricopa County sheriff's spokesman says a man wanted for questioning in a fatal shooting was shot and killed by authorities in Goodyear.
Lt. Brandon Jones says detectives confronted 26-year-old Jesus Chacon on Wednesday morning outside a Circle K convenience store.
Jones says Chacon reached for a weapon and ignored commands to put it down.
According to Jones, multiple shots were fired and Chacon was struck in the abdomen.
He later died at a hospital but no detectives were hurt.
Jones says Chacon was wanted for stealing a gun in a home burglary.
Authorities believe that gun was used to kill 51-year-old Mark Meginley, whose body was found last week near Buckeye.
Chacon says the Circle K and part of Litchfield Road near Interstate 10 will remain closed.
