WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A West Palm Beach police officer fatally shot a man after the officer was unable to subdue his assailant Saturday night, according to the West Palm Beach Police.

The officer was called to Briar Bay, a gated community east of Jog Road and north of Okeechobee Boulevard, at around 10:30 p.m. Neighbors complained a male in his 20s was trying to pull open windows and doors to enter homes to get food and some sleep, said West Palm Beach Lt. Charles Reed.
