AURORA — Police say a man who was shot and killed by an officer in suburban Denver pulled a handgun and is believed to have been involved in an armed "road rage" incident the night before.

The Aurora Sentinel reports that a woman called police Friday and told them a man had pointed a gun at her and her husband when they were driving. Aurora police couldn't find the man that night but spotted a vehicle matching the description Saturday.

The driver, whose name hasn't been released, got out of his vehicle and approached officers after he was pulled over. He retreated to his vehicle and pulled a gun after one of the officers grabbed him.

Police are still trying to determine how many times the officer fired or if the man fired his weapon.
