Earlier -- Austin police say the manager of an arcade fatally shot a man who was attempting to enter the business shortly after midnight Wednesday morning.
The manager says the man attempted to break in to the arcade, located off Manor Road in East Austin, while he was locking up for the night. The suspect was armed with a knife.
"The manager saw the guy, tried to close the door the suspect grabbed the door and tried to pull it open,” Sr. Officer Dennis Farris said. “The suspect was armed with a knife and at some point got the door open, he proceeded into the business and that's when the manager produced a weapon and shot the suspect."
The suspect was later pronounced dead. Police are still investigating the incident.
They say the manager is cooperating with police. No charges have been filed.
