DENVER (AP) — Authorities say police officers in a Denver suburb shot and killed a man who drew a handgun when they tried to break up an argument between him and a woman.
Lakewood Police Department officials said in a statement early Saturday that an unspecified number of police agents found the 57-year-old man and the woman arguing outside the police station Friday night.
The statement says the man produced a handgun when the agents tried to intervene, and the agents fired their weapons. It was not clear how many times he was shot.
The man died from his injuries at a hospital.
The woman was not injured.
Police officials say the agents involved will be placed on administrative leave during an investigation by the Jefferson County Critical Incident Response Team.
