DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

A man has died after an officer-involved shooting in Douglas, which happened around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Douglas Police officers arrived later and found a man on the front porch pointing a gun at his chin, and making statements that he had two weapons. They ordered him to drop the gun, and that's when they said he pointed it at one of the officers.

One officer shot and hit the man, who was not identified, in the stomach. He was then taken to an area hospital. Officials confirmed later that he died.
