ONONDAGA, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities have released more information on an armed confrontation at a central New York home that ended with a former corrections officer being fatally shot by police.
The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office says deputies responding to a report of a domestic dispute Tuesday evening in the town of Onondaga were confronted by 57-year-old Michael Sica. Officials say he pointed a handgun at a deputy, then ran into the garage at the home where he lived with his parents.
Police say Sica fired a shot from inside the garage. When deputies ran into the garage, they found Sica sitting in a chair. Officials say he pointed the handgun at the deputies, who then fired at Sica.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Local media say Sica was a former guard at the county jail.
