San Diego PD Officers Kill Man in SWAT Standoff

San Diego Union-Tribune

SAN DIEGO - Officers today shot and killed an apparently suicidal man after he pointed a rifle at officers during a SWAT standoff in Oak Park, police said.

Officers responded to a call at about 9 p.m. yesterday about a man armed with a rifle and threatening suicide at a residence in the 2200 block of Haniman Drive, said San Diego police Lt. Dave Rohowits.

When the man refused to come out, a SWAT team surrounded the residence and negotiators were called in, Rohowits said.

The standoff came to an end at about 1 a.m. today when police shot and killed the man after he emerged from the residence with a rifle and "leveled it at SWAT officers," Rohowits said.

The man's identity was not immediately released.
