He said the man fired off several rounds before officers opened fire. No police were injured and there were no immediate reports that any bystanders had been hurt.

SWAT units were called in and streets in the area were shut down as residents were told to stay away, Esparza said. Images broadcast by local media showed a heavy police presence in the area.
