The name of the victim killed in the officer involved shooting Thursday night has been released.

Aaron Hunter, 19, was shot by a Tucson police officer after an altercation, according to TPD. It started when police were called to the 3200 block of South Marc around 6 p.m. Thursday to a report of suspicious activity.

Two officers found Hunter hiding against a wall in an alley. He told the officers he wasn't carrying identification, but that the officers could walk to his home to retrieve it.

Over the police radio, the officers were told that the suspect was known to carry weapons. The officers said they attempted to pat Hunter down when an altercation started.

When Hunter began to flee, officers say a handgun fell. The officer drew his weapon. According to the officer, Hunter reached for the weapon so the officer shot him.

Hunter was transported to a local hospital where he died as a result of his injuries.

Hunter was released from the Department of Corrections in October 2011 after serving prison time for endangerment and weapons misconduct.

Both officers were placed on administrative leave due to TPD policy.
