A Boise police officer shot and killed a man Monday while law enforcement officials were trying to take the man into custody on alleged felony charges, according to police.

At about 4:30 p.m. Monday, city police officers and Idaho Department of Correction fugitive recovery agents were looking for the man in West Boise, the Boise Police Department said in a statement.

Officers were trying to remove the man from a car when police said he produced a weapon. One Boise officer “was forced to discharge his weapon, striking the suspect,” who died at the scene, police said.
