Shortly before 2 a.m. on May 26, 2021, Pinal County Sheriff's Office Deputies were called to a home on W. White Canyon Rd. in San Tan Valley regarding a domestic violence incident between a husband and wife. When deputies arrived, the male was armed with a weapon and became aggressive towards deputies.

The suspect's actions forced deputies to use deadly force. The suspect has been pronounced deceased.

The woman has been transported to a nearby hospital from injuries she sustained during the domestic violence incident. We are praying for her quick recovery.

This incident is still under investigation and more information will be released when it is available. 

**11:30 a.m. UPDATE**
