GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Police in Green Bay say an officer has shot and killed an armed man at an apartment complex.

Authorities say the man's estranged wife called police to her apartment building on the city's west side Monday morning because her husband had showed up and has a restraining order against him.

WLUK-TV reports police were told the man sometimes carries a pistol.

Two officers responded and found the 63-year-old man inside the building with a handgun. One officer fired and struck the man, who was taken to a local hospital where he died.
