Police were doing morning checks on businesses when they were flagged down and told a man was sitting in a car on the side of the Valero building. When officers checked on him, he wouldn’t come out of his car or respond to them.
The suspect finally got out of his car and pointed a handgun at the officers. They told him to drop the gun and when he would not, they shot him.
The suspect died at the scene. He has not been identified yet.
North Little Rock police are still on the scene interviewing witnesses.
