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.
