DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - An autopsy is scheduled for a Davenport man killed in an officer-involved shooting, authorities said Tuesday.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office said an autopsy will be performed Wednesday at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for James A. Cave, 54.

Davenport police officers responded Monday night to a home following a report of a man threatening to hurt himself in a garage, the Quad-City Times reported (https://bit.ly/1smXrc8 ).

Trained negotiators arrived and talked to the man, according to police. Police said the man drank and seemed to get more irrational and agitated during this time.

The man, later identified as Cave, became more aggressive after a few hours of negotiations, police said. He is accused of advancing toward officers with one weapon in his waistband and another in his hand.

Four police officers shot at Cave. He was later pronounced dead.

The officers have been placed on administrative leave following an investigation. Their names have not been released.
