SAPD Covert Unit officers were conducting surveillance at a home located at the 2800 block of Ravina Drive for a suspect wanted for Aggravated Robbery.

EMS arrived and transported the suspect, 35-year-old Raymond Mireles, to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. A loaded handgun was recovered from the suspect at the scene.
