GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Witness say more than 10 shots were fired in an officer-involved shooting that killed a man in Grand Junction.

The shooting happened Monday afternoon after officers were called to remove the unidentified man who was in a car outside a home downtown.

Police spokeswoman Kate Porras told the Daily Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1BYES07) that the shots were fired after the officer contacted the man.

She says a gun was found in his car. She won’t comment directly on whether the man pointed the gun at officers but says that officers don’t fire shots unless they feel like their lives or others’ livers are being threatened.
