The identity of the man killed in an officer involved shooting Monday was released Wednesday.

Police said Cedric Howard, 34, was holding another man hostage when police arrived at the 5200 block of Gawain Dr. SAPD said Howard came out of the duplex toting a shotgun and refusing to put it down.

Officers opened fire and killed the suspect.

Officers responded to the 5200 block of Gawain about 3:30 a.m. after a report of an argument between two men, police said. Howard was apparently holding the other man against his will in a duplex apartment.

Tiffney Taylor's still in disbelief and shock that her husband is dead, shot by police who said he wouldn't drop his shotgun following a disturbance with another man.

Police won't talk about the case, citing the investigation, nor will they release details or identify the man involved in the June 17 disturbance that prompted her husband, Cedric Howard, 34, to emerge from a Northeast Side home in the 5200 block of Gawain with a shotgun.
