San Bernardino police shoot armed man

A fight between San Bernardino police and an armed Fontana man Wednesday night ended when the man reached for his handgun and police shot and killed him.
Anthony Paul Gilmore, Jr., 23, died at Loma Linda University Medical Center about an hour after the shooting, police said.

Two San Bernardino gang officers spotted a motorist speeding through a residential neighborhood in the 200 block West 16th Street at 7:46 p.m. The vehicle had no back license plate and the driver ran a stop sign.

Police approached the driver when she stopped in the parking lot of an apartment complex near the corner of 16th Street and Arrowhead Avenue.

The driver and a passenger were detained due to the traffic violations. Another passenger ran from police after he was asked if he had a weapon.

Police say the passenger and officers both fell to the ground during a struggle. The man continued struggling with officers and then reached for a handgun lying on the ground next to him.

He put the gun under his body.

One of the officers feared that the man was going to shoot him or his partner, so he shot the man several times.

The officers received minor scrapes and bumps during the incident and were not hospitalized.

Police say the gun Gilmore reached for was his own and not taken from police during the struggle.
