Two Beaverton officers shoot, kill man on roof

Police say he was waving, pointing a gun

BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) - A Beaverton police spokesman says two officers have shot and killed a man standing on a roof.

Officer Mike Rowe said Tuesday the man was waving a gun and pointing it at people from his position on the roof.

Rowe says officers tried to talk to him but weren't successful and the man "became an active threat."

Beaver Acres Elementary School is across the street from the shooting scene and there is also a high school about a block away.

The schools were placed on lockdown for about an hour. No students were hurt.

The identity of the man has not yet been released.

The officers will be placed on paid administrative leave during an investigation by the Washington County Sheriff's Department.

Their names have not yet been released.
