Remington, an officer for four years in Tucson, joined the Walmart employee in the parking lot and followed Richards while "attempting to gain his cooperation," the police chief said in a statement.

"According to the employee, he caught up with Mr. Richards outside as he fled the store and asked to see a receipt for the toolbox. Instead of providing the receipt, Mr. Richards brandished a knife and said, 'Here's your receipt.'"

Magnus said that Remington wanted Richards to stop and to surrender his knife.

Four Minneapolis police officers were fired Tuesday, authorities said , amid protests and outrage after a viral video showed one of them kneeling on the neck of a handcuffed black man who cried that he could not breathe and later died. Minneapolis-area law enforcement has faced criticism in recent years over its use of force. In a 2016 incident that drew widespread condemnation, an officer with the suburban St. Anthony Police Department shot and killed 32-year-old Philando Castile during a traffic stop, the aftermath of which was streamed live on Facebook.

An Arizona police officer tased a knife-wielding man who refused to put down his blade - only for the suspect to fall onto the ground and stab himself in the neck. The wild incident was caught on bodycam in Glendale on November 23 after officers arrived on scene for a 'suspicious' fire , where authorities ultimately found a person 'acting odd.' Police were quickly able to determine that the man , who has not been named, was associated with the housefire which they deemed suspicious, while an officer began talking to the individual in an effort to calm him down.

"Mr. Richards refused to comply, and instead continued to head through the Walmart and Lowe's parking lots," Magnus said.

"According to the Walmart employee, Mr. Richards said, 'If you want me to put down the knife, you're going to have to shoot me.'"

A second officer arrived on the scene to assist Remington.

Both officers were a short distance behind Richards when they warned him not to enter the store, the chief said.

The video shows Richards beginning to enter the Lowe's when Remington tells him, "Do not go into the store, sir." Seconds later, the officer begins shooting Richards, who slumps over and falls out of his chair and onto the ground.

Remington fired nine rounds, striking the man in the back and side, according to Magnus.

"His use of deadly force in this incident is a clear violation of department policy and directly contradicts multiple aspects of our use of force training," Magnus said. "As a result, the department moved earlier today to terminate Officer Remington."

Pima County Attorney's Office to review incident, police chief says

A clip of Lowe's security camera footage shows Richards lying on the ground immediately after being shot, as the officer appears to be pulling his hands behind his back to handcuff him.

Remington was the only officer that discharged his weapon, according to Magnus.

Medical care was called to the scene "but a short time later Mr. Richards was declared dead," the police chief said.

Magnus said the incident will be reviewed by the Pima County Attorney's Office.

Attorney Michael Storie, who is representing Remington, told CNN that the "selected clips" presented at the news conference were only half the story.

"In any of these types of things, if you cut and paste a video, it will not properly lay out the officer's impressions and state of mind leading to a decision to employ force of any kind," Storie said.

Tucson Mayor Regina Romero described the actions of the officer as "unconscionable and indefensible."

She added that she supports a full investigation by the county attorney's office.

"It is moments like this that test our resolve to ensure justice and accountability," the mayor said. "We owe this to all Tucsonans. I ask our community to remain calm and be patient as investigations ensue."
