Police made a traffic stop on the suspect and ordered him out of the car with his hands up, according to Lt. Jorge Duran. Instead, he grabbed a “brown and silver object” and pointed it at officers, Duran said.

An officer fired at the suspect, who was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead. A gun was found in the man’s car, Duran said.
