DENVER, June 28 (UPI) -- Denver police say they shot and killed a man who allegedly pulled a replica handgun on them.
Police spokesman John White said officers received a call at 12:48 a.m. Monday about a man with a handgun, and found two men near West Alabama Place and South Hooker Street, The Denver Post reported.
Police said they gave commands to the men. White said one of the men obeyed but the other did not and then pulled what appeared to be a handgun.
