AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say an Avondale police officer fatally shot a man who had pointed a gun at police during a call Saturday night.
Officers were called to a home after receiving a call about someone having a gun there.
Police managed to safely remove all but one of the people inside the home.
The man who was later shot remained in a patio area.
Police say they tried to negotiate with the man, but that an Avondale officer fired his gun after the man on the patio pointed a gun at officers.
Authorities say the officer was in fear for his life.
No officers were injured.
The identity of the man who was killed hasn't yet been released.
