PUEBLO — Police say a man who was involved in a standoff at a Pueblo apartment complex was shot to death when he pointed a weapon at a team of SWAT officers.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (http://bit.ly/1d8TCPI ) officers were looking for the man after he allegedly shot another man in the chest on the same block at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. The victim of the initial shooting was able to leave the area to call for help.

Police say that when officers arrived, the gunman had holed himself up in an apartment and was making homicidal and suicidal threats. He was shot by police when he appeared at the front door and pointed a weapon at them.

Authorities have not released the man's name or age.
