hb-ois-picPolice responded to a call of a man threatening a woman with a gun at a restaurant.

An officer encountered the suspect and another woman walking near the corner of Warner Avenue and Hoskins Lane.

The suspect produced a handgun, and the officer fired, killing the unidentified man.

“I heard gunshots, and I thought they were firecrackers, so I didn’t think of any of it,” resident Dylan Sorensen recalled.

“Then I heard the helicopter go around and they said get down on the ground, so I knew something was up,” she said.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman who was with him was taken into custody.

The gun he was carrying turned out to be a replica firearm, police said. No officers were injured in the incident.
