A man has been killed in a Long Island police shooting, authorities said Friday.
The man was shot at around 10:30 p.m. Thursday in Brentwood, according to Newsday.
The man tried to run away after two Suffolk County police officers, patrolling in a marked vehicle, stopped his vehicle in a train station parking lot.
They chased him and tried unsuccessfully to use a Taser on him, then fired when the man displayed a gun, the department said.
He died at the scene.
The officers were not injured.
