YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a man who was killed after an officer-involved shooting in Yuma.

Yuma County Sheriff's officials identified the man as 42-year-old Rafael Salas Adame.

His probation officer contacted the sheriff's office about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday to say Adame was threatening to harm himself.

Sheriff's officials tried several times to contact Adame by cellphone and at his home, but found only an empty handgun case.

Using a cellphone tracking system, authorities located him holding a handgun in the remote stretch of agricultural land northeast of Yuma.

Deputies say they told Adame to drop his weapon several times. When he failed to do so, four deputies opened fire.

Adame was pronounced dead at Yuma Regional Medical Center.

Sheriff's officials said Wednesday that the shooting remains under investigation.
