Police Kill Man They Say Wouldn't Drop Handgun 9-27-2010

Police in Sterling Heights say officers fatally shot a 39-year-old man who refused to put down a weapon and pointed it at officers.
Lt. Luke Riley tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens the dead man was city resident Matthew L. Moroni.
Riley says Moroni's wife called police Friday night, saying her husband was suicidal, had been drinking and had cut himself. Moroni was laid off several months ago.
Police say Moroni's grandfather left the house, followed by Moroni, who was holding a handgun.
Three officers fired about a dozen shots. They've been placed on leave while detectives and the Macomb County prosecutor investigate.
Police say there was a large stock of weapons and ammunition in the house.
