A Scottsdale police officer shot and killed a man who was reportedly wielding a metal pipe early today on Hayden Road.

Police spokesman Sam Bailey said an employee at Scottsdale Paint and Body Shop, 315 N. Hayden Road, called police after seeing a man break a car window in the parking lot.

The man attacked the employee, who wasn’t injured, police said. Police have not identified the man.

The responding officer confronted the man in the middle of Hayden Road, where the officer, who was alone, shot the man at least once in the upper torso, police said.

“He continued to fight after he was shot,” Bailey said.

A second officer arrived with a K-9 unit and began helping the first officer subdue the man, but the dog attacked the two officers. The man was pronounced dead at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn hospital.

It was the second officer-involved shooting this year in Scottsdale. A Scottsdale officer shot and killed an armed parole violator Sept. 7 when he resisted arrest.
