PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say a man shot by officers has died.

They identified the man on Thursday as 30-year-old Henry Wayne Rivera and say he had outstanding warrants for his arrest.

Police say Rivera matched a description of a suspect in a crime spree the night before and was shot when he didn't obey commands during a confrontation Wednesday.

They say the man first ran from a motel and then got into a vehicle at a nearby business.
