GRAPEVINE -- Police shot and killed what they described as a suicidal armed man in a confrontation outside a residence Thursday.

Grapevine Police Sgt. Robert Eberling said James Kubera, 57, called 911 at about 2:20 p.m. and threatened to kill himself. Officers blocked off the scene around a residence in the 4100 block of Brentwood Circle as a SWAT team was called in.

Shortly after, Eberling said Kubera came out of his house firing a shotgun. Shots were exchanged between Kubera and officers, and Kubera was hit.

Kubera was pronounced dead at Baylor Grapevine just after 3:20 p.m.

No officers were injured.

The shooting remains under investigation.
