A 42 year old Mandan man was shot and killed by a Bismarck police officer late Sunday night.
Shortly after 11 p-m, police received a report of an intoxicated man with a shotgun threatening to kill the person who called in that report. When police arrived on scene – in the 3200 block of East Thayer Avenue – the officer ordered the man to show his hands and get on the ground. When he refused, he was shot.
The officer involved is an eight year veteran of the Bismarck police. He has been placed on administrative leave. The case has been turned over to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
