TACOMA — Tacoma police say officers fatally shot a man who shot at them.
Spokeswoman Loretta Cool told The News Tribune that officers responded about 3:20 p.m. Sunday to a location where residents had seen a man acting erratically.
Cool said the man was yelling and screaming while making agitated movements when officers arrived, and they saw he was holding a handgun. She said officers told the man to drop the weapon, then there was an exchange of gunfire. Cool said three officers fired at the man, who died at the scene. He was believed to be in his 40s.
The officers were unhurt. All three were placed on paid administrative leave.
