PHOENIX -

A domestic violence call ends with two Phoenix police officers injured and a suspect dead.

Just before midnight, officers responded to a call about a fight at an apartment complex near 59th Avenue and Roosevelt.

Police the man was hiding in a bathroom in an apartment and attacked the officers with a machete as they checked the welfare of a woman and four children.

The man, who was later identified as 35-year-old Tobias J. Torres, was fatally wounded when the officers shot him as they retreated.

"We have two officers that were injured this morning.. one of our officers received a laceration to his forearm.. another one has a laceration to his hand," said Sgt. Trent Crump.
