PHOENIX (AP) — Police say a man has been fatally shot in west Phoenix after he allegedly attacked his mother with a knife.

The man has been identified as 47-year-old Hector Miranda.

Police say officers responded to a call of domestic violence at a residence around 4:30 p.m. Monday.

They say the woman suffered a deep laceration to her head and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police say they found Miranda on the street armed with a long knife and what looked like a handgun.

They say Miranda ignored officers' numerous commands to drop the weapons and he pointed the gun at one officer.

Miranda was shot and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say they recovered a large knife and replica handgun.

No officers were injured.
