TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Police responding to a domestic violence report at a public housing complex in Toledo fatally shot a man who pointed a gun at them, authorities said.

City police responded to the Weiler Homes residence around 12:30 a.m. Saturday when a woman called 911 to say she had locked herself inside a bathroom after the father of her child had injured her. Four officers soon arrived at the home and heard the man yelling at the woman and threatening her.

The officers forced their way into the home and identified themselves, authorities said. The man came down the stairs and pointed a gun at the officers, and at least one officer then shot the man.

Authorities said “multiple rounds” were fired by police during the incident, but they did not say if the man fired any shots. It also wasn’t clear how many times he was struck or where.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and his name has not been released. Details on the woman’s injuries were not disclosed. Authorities have not said why the pair were arguing.
