COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a man who emerged from a hotel room in Ohio’s capital city and fired shots at police has been killed and an officer has been slightly wounded.

The 28-year-old man fatally shot Thursday afternoon in north Columbus hasn’t been identified. Columbus police say one of the five officers who responded to the hotel received a graze wound to the leg and received treatment at a hospital.

A Columbus police spokesman says investigators are reviewing body camera footage to determine which officers fired shots.

Police went to the hotel after receiving a report of a fight involving a gun. Sgt. Rich Weiner says a witness told investigators the man fired at officers after stepping out of a room.
