A man was fatally shot by police Sunday after repeatedly ramming his SUV into the police station in Leicester, Massachusetts, according to the Worcester County district attorney’s office.
The incident occurred around 6:13 a.m. Sunday, Worcester County DA Joseph D. Early Jr. said. The suspect, a male, had gotten nearly his entire vehicle inside the Leicester police station, authorities said, after which he allegedly got out of the SUV and pointed what appeared to be a rifle at an officer, Early said.
An officer shot the suspect and proceeded to provide medical attention before an ambulance arrived, according to authorities. The suspect was later pronounced dead at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester.
