NORTHGLENN, Colo. — Officers responding to a report of a suicidal man with a gun in Northglenn shot and killed that man after he opened fire, according to police.

Northglenn police said their officers responded to the call from the 900 block of East 108th Avenue at approximately 9:27 p.m., and when the officers arrived they reported hearing a single gunshot that came from inside the residence.

At that point, Northglenn police set up a perimeter and established phone contact with a man in the house. They say conversations with that individual lasted for “several hours.”

Unable to negotiate a peaceful surrender, police say they took cover at approximately 12:02 a.m. as the man exited the font of the residence and began firing. Police said the two officers returned fire, striking and killing the man.
