Officials released video from a fatal officer-involved shooting in Buckeye that occurred as officers responded to reports that a man had shot his wife. Police were called to a house near Wayland Drive and 238th Avenue in Buckeye, Arizona where 30-year-old William Ferguson had fatally shot his wife.

The officers notice the pickup truck and are talking about the situation when gunfire erupts. Body-camera footage shows Biffin taking cover behind a patrol vehicle and firing back at Ferguson, discharging numerous rounds. Ferguson’s ambush continued with the second round of gunfire that shattered the window of the patrol vehicle. Ferguson had been shot in the shoulder during the standoff and moments later took his own life. A review determined the officers were justified in the shooting.
