After a suspect wouldn’t drop his weapon, D.C. police officers shot and killed the suspect on Monday night in Northeast D.C. The weapon the suspect was holding turned out to be a BB gun. Police say they received reports of a man with a gun at the 100 block of Varnum Street, shortly before 10:30 p.m. Monday. Police demanded several times that the man put down the weapon, but he instead pointed it at the officers, who fired. The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition, but later died. Police recovered the weapon afterwards and discovered that it was a BB gun. The suspect has not yet been identified.
