PARKVILLE, Md. — Baltimore County police said that officers fatally shot a suicidal man who shined a flashlight and pointed a handgun at them in Parkville early yesterday, though the man's father said police told him the weapon his son had been holding was a pellet gun.

The dead man, identified as Adam Benjamin Rothstein, 24, of the 8600 block of David Ave. in Parkville had called Baltimore County's 911 emergency line shortly before 2 a.m. yesterday and told authorities that he had a gun and threatened to commit suicide, police said. County police officers found Rothstein walking in the 8700 block of Avondale Road near Parkville Middle School, a few blocks from his home, police said.

A news release issued by the county Police Department yesterday morning stated that officers spoke with Rothstein, who told them he was carrying a handgun and also had another gun and knives.
