Army veteran shot and killed by San Diego police
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- San Diego police have shot and killed a gunman after a standoff at a downtown apartment.
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1lmkS0G ) says officers were called to the building around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday by reports that a 62-year-old Army veteran had made suicide threats.
Dozens of officers surrounded the building and some residents were evacuated.
Lt. Jorge Duran says the shirtless man was on the third floor and armed with an assault-style rifle.
Duran says negotiators tried to get the man to surrender but after an hour, officers saw him aim the rifle at them.
Duran says an officer fired about a dozen rifle shots at the man.
Another hour passed, and a SWAT team finally stormed the apartment and found him dead inside.
The man's name hasn't been released.
