Officers shoot, kill suspect during attempted arrest at Uptown parking ramp

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, around 2:10 p.m. near West Lake Street and Fremont Avenue South, members of a task force tried to arrest a person wanted on a state warrant for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. 

During the encounter, the suspect, who was in a parked car, was uncooperative and produced a handgun, the USMS said. The officers then shot at the suspect. Officers attempted life-saving measures, but medics pronounced the suspect dead at the scene.
