NAMPA -- One man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Nampa.
At around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday police responded to a noise complaint at an apartment building near 16th Avenue and 2nd Street South.
Nampa Police Sgt. Tim Randall says when the three officers arrived they found a man with a gun. Randall says the man pointed his gun at the officers while making threatening statements. One of the officers fired multiple shots toward the suspect, who retreated back to his apartment and closed the door, according to Randall. It is not known at this time if the officer's gunshots hit the suspect.
A bomb squad robot equipped with a camera later entered the suspect's apartment. Randall says the robot's camera showed the man on the floor. He appeared to be deceased. Paramedics later confirmed his death.
Nampa Police say the deceased man was in his 60s, but his name has not been released. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
Randall says the three officers have been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of an investigation. Such procedures are part of standard protocol following an officer-involved shooting.
The Canyon County Sheriff's Office is now leading a Critical Incident Task Force investigation on this matter.
