FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police in North Texas have fatally shot a suspect who investigators say pointed a weapon at officers before barricading himself inside a home.

Fort Worth police say the shooting happened Saturday night as officers responded to a domestic disturbance call.

Tactical officers tried to negotiate with the barricaded suspect. Police say moments later the man came out of the home and again threatened officers. One officer shot the suspect, who died at the scene.

Officer Jimmy Pollozani on Sunday declined to identify the suspect’s weapon amid the investigation. Pollozani says an autopsy has been ordered. The suspect’s name wasn’t immediately released. No officers were hurt.

The officer who opened fire has been put on administrative leave amid a review of the fatal shooting.

Further details weren’t immediately released.
