Manitowoc officer fatally shoots man after confrontation

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) — A Manitowoc police officer has shot and killed a man after a confrontation.

The Manitowoc Police Department says the officer and Manitowoc firefighters responded to a fire alarm around 4:45 a.m. Sunday. While investigating the complaint, the officer confronted a man armed with what authorities called a blunt instrument.
