      Spokane police kill man at scene of suspicious death

      SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane police have shot and killed a man who they say drove through police barricades at the scene of a woman's suspicious death and got out of his truck with what appeared to be a gun.

      Police Chief Frank Straub says the man was a person of interest in the woman's death. She was found dead in a home Tuesday morning.

      Police spokesman Tim Schwering says "what appears to be a firearm" was found next to the man's body after he was shot Tuesday afternoon.

      Reporters and photographers had gathered nearby after learning police were investigating a death at the house.

      Police say the Spokane County medical examiner will identify both the man and the woman.

      A regional law enforcement team will investigate the man's death.
