NEW YORK (MyFoxNY.com/ AP) — A man shot by police outside an apartment building in Brooklyn has died, the NYPD said.

Police were called to a home in Bedford-Stuyvesant shortly after 7 p.m. Monday after receiving a report on a dispute between a mother and her son that may have involved a gun, authorities said.

While officers were interviewing the woman outside, her 18-year-old son was pacing around inside. He began screaming at his mother and the officers from the window, police said.

He then climbed out the first floor window and walked toward the police, the NYPD said. Officers opened fire, striking the man.

Sources told Fox 5 that the officers saw a dark object in the man’s hand. Meantime, some neighbors claiming to have witnessed the shooting said the man was not armed.

He was taken to Woodhull Hospital in serious condition but later died.

The police are investigating. So far, no gun has been found.
