MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) –

Memphis police say two officers have fatally shot a man in a car.

A news release from the Memphis Police Department says officers responded to a loud music disturbance at an apartment complex Thursday night.

While checking the area, officers found a man found slumped over in a car and went to check on his welfare.

Police say two officers opened fire on the man when he pointed a gun at them.

The man died at the scene. He was identified Friday as 24-year-old Steven Askew.

The two officers involved in the shooting were relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of the investigation. Their names have not been released.

  1. We only have the cops version of what happened. The other witness is dead.
