METAIRIE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man was shot dead by sheriff’s deputies after deputies say the man pointed a gun at them. Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Capt. Jason Rivarde says deputies were called to a Metairie apartment complex on Saturday. Officials say the first deputy who arrived approached a man, who then went inside an apartment. Rivarde says the apartment resident came back outside and pointed a gun at officers, with at least one deputy firing. Officials say the man came out a second time with a gun. At least one officer fired again, and the man went back inside. Deputies then broke in and found the man dead from gunshot wounds. It's unclear if deputies killed him or the man killed himself.
