New York City police say officer fatally shot 86-year-old gunman who may have shot woman

New York city police say a uniformed officer shot and killed an 86-year-old man after he refused to drop his gun.

They say the gunman may have shot a woman before police arrived at the scene in Astoria in Queens on Saturday.

Police say a 911 call came in at 11:16 a.m., and the caller said he had shot his daughter.

Police say officers found a man armed with a gun and the man refused an order to drop his weapon, then pointed his gun at the officers; one of the officers then shot him.

The 86-year-old gunman was pronounced dead at a hospital.

A 65-year-old woman was found inside the house with a gunshot wound. She is in critical condition at another hospital.

Their names were not immediately released.
