Gunman and police dog killed in confrontation at community college campus in San Diego


SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego police have shot and killed a gunman who fatally wounded a police dog on a community college campus. Authorities say the 33-year-old man was pronounced dead at a hospital after the pre-dawn confrontation Wednesday at San Diego Mesa College. His name wasn’t immediately released. Police say they spotted a Tesla whose driver reportedly fired at another motorist following a road dispute. Police say the driver refused to pull over and finally abandoned the car on the college campus. Police confronted him a short distance away but they say he refused to drop the gun and an officer shot the gunman, who also fired, mortally wounding the dog.
