GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - Gresham police say officers fatally shot a man who threatened them with a weapon after crashing a vehicle.

A department spokesman did not immediately disclose the man’s name or say what type of weapon he displayed.

The incident began early Friday when officers were sent to investigate a suspicious vehicle. Officers opted not to chase when the driver took off, but the vehicle quickly crashed.

Gresham police say two officers fired at the man who died at the scene.
