Seattle police fatally shoot man firing at officers

SEATTLE — Seattle police say an officer shot and killed a man who fired a shot at officers and threatened a woman with a rifle on Friday.

Police say that officers responded to a call of shots fired at an apartment complex in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. When they arrived, they found a woman who said a man had threatened her with a rifle.

Police spokeswoman Renee Witt says officers spotted the man in a second-story window armed with a gun and ordered him to drop the weapon. The man then threatened officers and fire a single shot. An officer shot back, hitting the man.

A SWAT team then entered the building and found the man fatally wounded.

No other details were immediately available Friday morning.
