ANCHORAGE (AP) — Police say an officer fatally wounded a 26-year-old man in a confrontation in an Anchorage neighborhood.

Spokesman David Parker said the officer fired as Shane Tasi approached him aggressively Saturday night with a stick and refused repeated commands to put it down.

Parker said the man was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.

The confrontation began after police responded to reports that the man had yelled at passing cars and attacked a dog with the stick.

The shooting is under investigation.
