Police: Officer Shot Suicidal Man Who Opened Fire


(AP) — Authorities say East Texas police fatally shot a man after he began firing a gun while officers were responding to a call about him being suicidal.

Beaumont police say officers received a call to a commercial part of the city around 5 a.m. Thursday about an armed man who was suicidal. Police say officers tried to negotiate, but when that failed a SWAT team was called in.

Police say the man then began shooting a gun and an officer returned fire, killing him. Police did not release the man’s name, age or the identity of the officer who shot him.
