Police say a man was shot and killed by an officer in Kingman on Feb.10.

Around 8:15 pm, the Kingman Police Department was informed of a possible domestic violence occurring in an RV park in the 2800 block of Airway Avenue.  

Upon the officer’s arrival, contact was made with the person who made the call. The officer then attempted to contact the people in the RV where the alleged domestic violence was occurring.

During that contact, a confrontation occurred between the officer and a man inside of the RV, which led to the man being shot by the officer.

No officers or bystanders were hurt in the incident.  

The officer-involved shooting is being investigated by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and the involved officer has been placed on administrative leave by the Kingman Police Department, which is standard protocol for their agency, pending the outcome of the investigation.
