Chris Mears, another El Paso police spokesman who was at the scene, said an armed "Hispanic man" had been spotted in an alley, knocking on the door of Kids Campus Daycare.

When police officers arrived, one officer asked employees of the daycare to lock down. Meanwhile outside behind the building, two police officers confronted the allegedly armed man.

"Unfortunately the subject did not comply with the officers commands and when he made a threatening motion with the weapon towards the officers, they discharged their duty fire arms and the subject died here at the scene," Mears said.
