A fatal shooting in the Sunnyside neighborhood occurred at 3:29 p.m. Wednesday afternoon during an attempted arrest involving the U.S. Marshals Office.

The suspect was pronounced deceased at the scene on Izabel Street after U.S. Marshal deputies fired at the suspect when a handgun was produced. Life saving measures were attempted and medics were called to the scene. 

The Flagstaff Police Department was not involved in the operation but is on the scene to assist with street closures in the area between Sixth Avenue and the 2200 block of Izabel Street. 

While the Flagstaff Police Department said there is no ongoing threat to the public, the FBI Phoenix Office is conducting an ongoing investigation on the incident.
