SAN DIEGO — A man was shot and killed by police Thursday afternoon in City Heights after pointing a gun at officers, authorities said.

Around 4 p.m., officers were called to the 4300 block of Menlo Avenue, near El Cajon Boulevard, after receiving a report of a man pointing a gun at two women, according to San Diego police. When officers made contact with him, he pointed a gun at them, prompting seven officers to fire their weapons, police said.

The man was struck at least once before falling to the ground, but when officers saw he was still moving and still had a gun in his hand, they fired bean bag rounds and used a K-9 to take him into custody, police said.

The man, whom police have not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Aerial video from SkyFOX showed a yellow tarp on a sidewalk, which may have been covering the man’s body.

Homicide detectives were investigating.

The shooting was the third involving San Diego police officers in less than two weeks.
