CENTURY, Fla. (AP) _ Three Escambia County deputies are on
administrative leave after they fatally shot a man who was believed to be suicidal and pointed a gun at them.
The names of the man and the deputies have not been released.
The sheriff's office says the deputies followed the man home Wednesday because he was driving erratically. They also got a call from the man's wife, saying he was showing some suicidal tendencies
and had several guns on him.
When they reached the home, the officers tried to convince him to drop the weapon. Authorities say the man kept the gun and tried to take aim at the officers, so they shot him.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate.
