Man shot to death after firing handgun at deputies

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a man was shot to death after firing a handgun at deputies in Larimer County.

The sheriff's office says a woman called 911 just before midnight Friday to report that her ex-boyfriend had arrived at her Glacier View home, and she believed the man needed medical attention for an overdose.

Authorities say a deputy shot and killed the man after he fired once at the officers.

The man, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
