ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- A suspect who engaged in a stand-off with police at a south St. Louis City home was shot and killed by officers, police say.

Police said they received a call from a 32-year-old off-duty officer about someone breaking into his home in the 900 block of Bellerive on April 10.

When officers arrived, they said they spotted a man running to a nearby garage where he then fired shots at officers.

A SWAT team was called in.

Detectives said the man ran out of the garage and charged at officers. He was shot and killed by an officer in an altercation, police say. In June, police identified the man as Carlos Castaneda, 34.

The officer who fired the shot was a 36-year-old man who had been with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department for 12 years.

The 900 block of Bellerive is in the Carondelet neighborhood, between Grand and Interstate 55.

The Force Investigation Unit is investigating, police say.
