Posted On: Aug 17, 2017

 - Livermore police shot and killed a an armed man who they say was acting bizarrely and whose home lit up into flames while he was barricaded inside.

The officer-involved shooting occurred just before 9 p.m. in  a mobile home park in the 1300 block of Via Desta, according to lt. John Hurd.

Police say that he challenged his neighbors to a fight. When officers arrived after the first 911 call, he retreated inside, made suicidal statements and fired his gun several times.

A crisis was brought in to calm him down, but two hours after the first 911 call a fire started in his home. He came out holding a shotgun, police said, prompting officers to shoot him.

A neighbor heard multiple shots fired. Fire crews were able to put the flames out.
