Phoenix Police Commander Greg Carnicle was shot and killed in the line of duty Sunday night in North Phoenix.
According to Sgt. Mercedes Fortune of the Phoenix Police Department, it started Sunday evening when several roommates at the home got into an argument. The situation escalated and the roommates called police at about 7 p.m. to remove one of the roommates who reportedly was acting strange and erratic. The Phoenix Police Department identified the man Monday as Jacob Emry McIlveen. The 22-year-old was shot by another officer and pronounced dead at the scene.
Carnicle and two of his officers, Marissa Dowhan and Alicia Hubert, were dispatched to the home. Fortune said that McIlveen was complying at first and there was no sign of any problem until McIlveen "slammed the front door on the officers," according to police.
