Three Phoenix police officers were wounded late Thursday after a suspect driving a stolen car opened fire at them while driving near a terminal at Sky Harbor International Airport.

The suspect died at the scene, but it was not clear whether he was killed by police fire or by a self-inflicted shot. His name was not released Friday.

“This is going to take much, much more investigation, including a reconstruction of the crime scene,” said Detective Tony Morales, a police department spokesman. Another police spokesman suggested that the suspect wanted to die in a suicide-by-cops scenario.
