3 officers shoot armed man in Vancouver, Wash.

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.
