CENTERVILLE, Utah (AP) - A police officer in Centerville, Utah has killed a 39-year-old man said to be suicidal.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1eGivif ) that Vincent John Farrand was killed on Sunday afternoon.

Assistant Centerville Police Chief Paul Child says Farrand’s wife called police, saying her husband was suicidal and upset that another man had hit on her. She said he’d armed himself and left for the man’s home.

Officers began looking for Farrand and eventually determined that he’d returned home. Police say Farrand came outside with a handgun in and approached police. Police plead with him to put the gun down. Instead, he pointed the gun at the officers, and one shot him dead.

The officer who killed Farrand been placed on routine paid administrative leave as authorities investigate what happened.
