BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Police in Bismarck have released the name of the Mandan man who was shot and killed by a police officer responding to a confrontation at an apartment building.

The man was identified as 42-year-old James Anthony Scott. Police say he allegedly threatened another man with a shotgun late Sunday and tried to flee when officers arrived. Police say he ignored commands to show his hands and get on the ground.

The officer believed Scott to be armed and dangerous and shot him with a rifle about 11:30 p.m. Scott was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say they recovered a shotgun from an apartment hallway. They didn’t say if the suspect had a weapon on him.

Per policy, the officer is on administrative leave while the state crime bureau investigates.
