DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say officers have shot and killed a man who pointed at them what turned out to be a replica handgun.

The episode began about 4 p.m. Monday when police received a report of a man walking along a residential street about one mile north of the U.S. 75-Interstate 635 interchange.

Police say the man pointed at arriving officers what appeared to be a handgun before fleeing on foot.

Shortly thereafter, police say officers answering a report of an armed man stealing from a drug store and fatally shot the man after he pointed the fake gun at them.
