A Phoenix police officer fatally shot a home invasion suspect who allegedly ignored commands to drop his gun – and told cops to shoot him, department officials said.
Officers responded to a woman’s home on Feb. 6 after she called 911 to report finding an armed man, later identified as 29-year-old Anthony Greco, in her backyard, Phoenix police announced Monday while releasing video of the incident.
The woman, who was home alone at the time, had just gotten out of the shower when she noticed him, Phoenix police Sgt. Ann Justus said.
Greco then entered the woman’s home while she was on the phone with a dispatcher, according to her frantic 911 call.
“Get out of my house!” she screams. “Get out of my f–king house! He’s in my house with a gun, please hurry! Oh my God, please hurry!”
The frightened woman was able to escape her home to safety via a window. Body-cam video of the incident
