VANCOUVER, Wash. – A man who refused to put down a gun was shot by three officers and killed early Tuesday in Vancouver.
The Columbian reports police had responded to a report of an armed man about 3:30 a.m. at an intersection just west of downtown.
Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp told KGW-TV the man was "engaging in threatening activity" and refusing officer commands when he was shot.
A neighbor reported hearing six to eight shots. No officers were injured.
It was the seventh officer-involved killing in Washington in little more than two weeks.
