Horner said that at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the department received multiple 911 calls about a man walking around and randomly firing a gun in the 32600 block of Kenita Way in Union City. No one was hit or injured.

Witnesses told police that Worrell was “acting incoherent and screaming profanities,” according to a police news release.

Police brought in a negotiator and an officer trained to talk to people with mental illness but those attempts to calm Worrell failed. When he pointed his handgun directly at police officers, he was shot and killed, police said.
