A Fremont man in a Valentine's Day argument with his wife was shot and killed Sunday by police officers after he pointed a gun at them, authorities said.
The unidentified 52-year-old man was shot about 12:10 p.m. outside a home on the 3500 block of Norfolk Road, said Fremont police Detective Bill Veteran, a department spokesman.
The incident began about 11:40 a.m. when officers responded to reports of a family-related disturbance at the home, Veteran said. He said police were told that the man who lived there had been drinking, was arguing with his wife and was armed with a handgun.
A group of officers found the man in front of his garage and tried to talk with him as other officers removed his wife and 10-year-old daughter from the back of the home, Veteran said.
Police briefly negotiated with the man before he "raised the handgun in the direction of the officers," Veteran said.
Four officers opened fire, killing the man, Veteran said.
