Sexual assault suspect killed by police identified

6-20-2011 Arizona:

Tucson Police have identified 43-year-old Ernesto Agramont as the man killed during an incident on Jun. 15.

Diana Lopez, a spokesperson with Tucson Police tells KGUN9 detectives responded to 485 South Stone Avenue to locate and arrest Agramont for child sexual assault and child abuse charges.

When officers arrived, Agramont was immediately confrontational with detectives and made several statements referring to suicide by cop. Detectives asked for assistance to respond and help contain the home while they obtained a search warrant.

A short time later, Agramont exited his residence carrying a large knife. He was given numerous commands to drop the knife, which he refused to do continuing to advance towards officers.
