California rape murder suspect fatally shot by US Marshals

U.S. Marshals in Phoenix on Friday evening shot and killed a fugitive wanted in California on murder and rape charges, the federal agency said.

The fugitive died amid an exchange of gunfire with members of U.S. Marshals Service task force near Sky Harbor International Airport.

When task force members tried to arrest the suspect, "a handgun was produced, and the suspect fired multiple rounds at law enforcement. Task Force members returned fire, striking the suspect," the Marshals Service statement said in a statement.
