BOERNE, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas police officer has fatally shot an armed man during a disturbance call at an apartment complex.

Police in Boerne (BER’-nee) say the shooting happened Friday night. The officer has been placed on administrative leave.

Boerne police say two officers responded to two 911 disturbance calls at the complex. A person who summoned police said one of the suspects had a gun.

Police say the arriving officers confronted several subjects. Authorities say one man ignored a police order to turn around, and when he did he pointed a weapon toward an officer and refused commands to drop the gun.

The officer opened fire. The suspect died at the scene.



Names of the officer and the suspect weren’t immediately released.

Boerne is 25 miles northwest of San Antonio.
