(KMOV) – Authorities say a 21-year-old suicidal man was killed after he pointed a gun at St. Charles County deputies.

According to deputies, officers responded to a report of a suicidal person at a home in the 2000 block of Old Hwy 79 sometime Saturday night.

They arrived at the scene and found an intoxicated Anthony Kovac, a Raytown, Mo. resident who was holding a handgun and threatening to hurt himself.

Deputies say they went into the hallway and Kovac exited a back bedroom and pointed the gun at an officer.

Authorities say an officer opened fire and hit Kovac. He was transported to the hospital, where he later died.
