The shooting was reported around 1 p.m. in the 2200 block of West Bonanza Road, near Tonopah Drive, the address for Kensington Suites.
Police were conducting a welfare check on an apartment which had its door barricaded and water running so much it was causing flooding. Earlier in the day, Spurgeon Daniels had made comments that indicated he wanted to hurt himself and had been seen running naked around the complex.
Daniels initially refused to open the door. When officers entered, police said he was "extremely agitated." As he approached police, officers used a Taser, which was ineffective.
