PAWTUCKET(AP) — Pawtucket police say they were defending themselves when they killed a Massachusetts man who pulled a gun on them during a traffic stop.
Two police officers shot the man several times on Sherman Street shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities say they stopped the man because he appeared to match the description of a suspect wanted by Massachusetts state police for an assault with a firearm earlier in the day.
