PHOENIX — Police say an ex-convict who fired at officers in the parking lot of a Phoenix convenience store has died in the ensuing shootout.

Police identified the man as 35-year-old Andrew Collins of Phoenix.

They say no officers were injured in the shooting incident around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say two officers were looking for a man wanted for a felony warrant.

A man on a bike matching the description of the wanted person was spotted, but fled the scene and then reportedly fired a handgun at the approaching officers.

The officers returned fire and authorities say Collins was pronounced dead at the scene.

Records show Collins served eight years in an Arizona prison for convictions of kidnapping and trafficking in stolen property.
