PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – Police officers responding to a domestic disturbance in Pueblo shot and killed a man. Sgt. Franklyn Ortega says officers could hear the confrontation when they arrived at the residence just after 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Officers forced their way into the residence, encountered a threat and shot and killed the man. The Pueblo County coroner identified the man Sunday as 24-year-old Estevon Cruz of Pueblo.

Four officers were placed on paid administrative leave while the case is investigated.
