LAKEWOOD, Pierce County (AP) — Lakewood police shot and killed a man in a confrontation Tuesday night at a duplex in the Tillicum area.
Lakewood police Lt. Jeff Alwine says officers went to a duplex looking for a man wanted on an arrest warrant accusing him of felony theft.
Alwine says two officers saw the 28-year-old Lakewood man through a broken window holding a gun. He refused commands to drop the gun and come out.
Alwine says he did something threatening that caused the officers to fire. He died at the scene.
