LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Police say a domestic dispute and ensuing threats led to a confrontation between a male suspect and officers culminating in the officers shooting the man dead.

Lubbock police identified the dead suspect as 51-year-old Guadalupe Esquivel.

The shooting happened at an apartment in a northwestern Lubbock neighborhood Monday night. Assistant Police Chief Greg Stevens said Tuesday that Esquivel’s ex-girlfriend reported that he threatened to kill her and her children. Officers arrived and confronted Esquivel, who Stevens said responded by brandishing a pistol and raised it toward the officers. One officer then fired 11 times, killing Esquivel.

Stevens said the shooting was captured by a patrol car camera.
