MacKenzie says the man ran from the car to a nearby home and tried to kick in the door while pulling out a gun and three officers fired at him.

The man was struck and died at the scene. His name and the names of the officers have not been released.

MacKenzie says a woman inside the home was not injured and the three people in the vehicle were taken from the scene for questioning.
