The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. along the 500 block of North Harcourt Street, Anaheim Police Department officials said.

SWAT officers were assisting Irvine police in serving a search warrant involving two barricaded suspects, according to Anaheim  police Sgt. Luis Correa.

” During a search of the detached garage, Irvine detectives found a loaded rifle and heard noises coming from the attic,” the sergeant said in a written statement.

SWAT officers responded to the scene, police said. Both suspects in the attic refused orders to come down and surrender.

Officers managed to use tear has to flush one of the men out of the attic, but he remained “uncooperative,” Correa said. Police used less-lethal weapons to subdue him.

“A second male suspect remained barricaded in the attic and made verbal statements he would shoot officers,” according to Correa. “Ultimately, an officer-involved shooting occurred.”

Paramedics pronounced the wounded suspect dead at the scene.

The man who came down from the attic and a second person, both parolees, were arrested by Irvine police.

No further details were available.
