DeKalb County police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that left a man dead.
Channel 2 Action News is working with police to see if they've identified the suspect killed.
Interim police Chief James Conroy told Channel 2’s Darryn Moore the shooting happened at the Alden Ridge Apartments on Post Oak Drive, just off Brockett Road, early Friday morning.
Conroy said officers were called to the complex because of a man yelling and banging on doors.
"It appeared to be a replica pistol, but the suspect was also armed with several knives," Conroy said.
One officer confronted the man and the suspect pulled out what the officer believed was a gun, Conroy said, and the officer shot the man.
