DENVER (AP) — An investigation is underway after police shot and killed a man west of Denver.

Lakewood police spokesman John Romero says an officer on patrol encountered a man shooting a gun at Mountair Park on Wednesday night. The officer immediately called for backup and followed the suspect toward a busy street.

The Denver Post reports the man, whose name has not been released, was shot when he refused commands and opened fire on responding officers.

No officers were injured, and the man died at the scene.
