Bicyclist dies after stopped, treated, shot by Tucson police [View all]

A Tucson police officer shot and wounded a bicyclist Monday after the bicyclist produced a gun during a traffic stop, the Tucson Police Department reported.

Around 11:15 a.m., an officer in a police car stopped the male bicyclist near North Columbus Boulevard and East Fairmount Street. As the man attempted to brake, he fell off his bike.

Paramedics and an additional officer were called to help treat the bicyclist's injuries. After receiving care, the man stood up and produced a handgun, said Tucson Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Bay.

Officers tried to take the gun from the man and at least one shot was fired during the struggle. One of the officers then fired his gun, striking the man.
