HOUMA, La. (AP) - State police say a man has been killed in Houma in a shooting involving officers from three law enforcement agencies.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter’s office says no officers were injured.

Investigators told WDSU-TV (https://bit.ly/1JqBPTn ) that the shooting took place after a pursuit of a theft suspect and that officers used a tire deflation device to stop the suspect’s vehicle. Police say the suspect got out of his vehicle and pointed a weapon toward the officers.
