Police: Officers fatally shoot man who pointed gun at them in Toledo

Crime

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Police responding to a domestic violence report at a public housing complex in Toledo fatally shot a man who authorities say pointed a gun at them.

City police responded to the Weiler Homes residence early Saturday when a woman called 911 to say she had locked herself inside a bathroom after the father of her child had injured her.

Four officers soon arrived at the home and heard the man yelling at the woman and threatening her.

Authorities say the officers forced their way into the home and identified themselves. The man came down the stairs and pointed a gun at the officers, and at least one officer then shot him.
