WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) — Warren police say officers shot a man while responding to a domestic disturbance at a home in the area of Ryan Rd., north of 11 Mile.

The incident happened Friday at around 1:45 p.m. Police say they had received calls about a man who was assaulting family members.

Warren police commissioner Charles Ruston tells 7 Action News, "A subject exited the residence armed with a handgun and after pointing the weapon at officers, officers fired several shots, striking the subject."

"He was later taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased," he said.

The officers performed life-saving measures until the Warren Fire Department arrived on the scene and took the man to the hospital.

The commissioner said the Warren Police Department's detective bureau is handling the investigation, not an outside agency. He said body camera footage from several officers and in-car camera footage will show investigators what occurred.

The investigation is ongoing and no other information has been released.
