GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a man shot and killed by officers in Germantown was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle. Police say he was also wearing a tactical vest and carrying several magazines loaded with extra ammunition.

Antoine Goodrum, 27, was shot Monday night after police say he refused to comply with officers’ commands. Police say seven officers fired their weapons. They say the officers negotiated with Goodrum for 12 minutes before opening fire.

Police say Goodrum called them to report that he had shot and killed his grandmother and his roommate inside a Germantown home. That turned out not to be true — those two people were unharmed.

But police say numerous shots were fired from inside the home, and bullet holes were found in a parked car nearby.
