According to Amarillo police, an autopsy was scheduled Monday on 33-year-old German Mata.

Lt. Erick Bohannon said officers early Sunday responded to a 911 call about a neighborhood man causing some problems. Bohannon said the man pulled a pistol out of his waistband and pointed it at officers.

Bohannon said an officer shot Mata, who died later Sunday at an Amarillo hospital. No officers were hurt.

Police later determined Mata had displayed a replica of a pistol.
