De Pere police fatally shoot man


DE PERE, Wis. (AP) - Police officers in the Green Bay area shot and killed a man they say threatened them with a gun.

De Pere police said Wednesday officers were called to check on a person who was possibly armed and suicidal.

Officers tried unsuccessfully to contact the man Tuesday night, then saw a vehicle leaving a garage. Police say they stopped the vehicle, the suicidal man pointed a gun at officers and was shot. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Brown County Sheriff's Department is investigating.
