TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a police officer shot and killed a man who pointed a gun at him in Ybor City.
Police say 35-year-old Roobik Vartanian was shot early Saturday morning and died later at a Tampa hospital.
Officer Rick Harrell, who was patrolling with a partner in plain clothes, reports he saw Vartanian arguing with two men, yelling racial slurs and threatening to kill them. Police say the officers saw that Vartanian was armed and ordered him to drop the gun.
When Vartanian pointed the weapon at them, authorities say Harrell fired one shot and hit Vartanian in the stomach.
