COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Authorities say a Columbus police officer fatally shot a man who was holding a gun in another man's face.

Columbus police said a caller on Monday night reported he wanted someone to leave his home and was threatening to shoot him. A second call came from a man who said he had a gun pointed at his face.

Officers saw the man through the window holding the gun on the other man.

An officer entered and ordered him to drop the gun before shooting him multiple times. It wasn't clear whether the armed man fired his gun, but the officer wasn't hurt.

The man was pronounced dead later at a hospital. His name hasn't been released yet. The man who survived was unhurt.
