An early Sunday gunfight involving three Buckeye (Ariz.) Police officers working an off-duty security detail at the El Gran Mercado swat meet in Phoenix resulted in the death of one officer and critical injuries to another.

The gunfight began at about 1 a.m., after the officers confronted three occupants of a vehicle that was reported to have been driving recklessly on the property.

The Buckeye PD identified officers Christopher Paz and Rolando Tirado as the officers who were shot. Officer Tirado died from his wounds.
