Fox 16 is reporting that a man was fatally shot by North Little Rock police this morning at a Valero station at 9600 Highway 165, the England Highway. Channel 4 says the shooting occurred about 8:30 a.m. and folllowed a report of a suspicious person there. The man reportedly was shot after pulling a gun. Fox 16's update

Police were doing morning checks on businesses when they were flagged down and told a man was sitting in a car on the side of the Valero building. When officers checked on him, he wouldn't come out of his car or respond to them.

The suspect finally got out of his car and pointed a handgun at the officers. They told him to drop the gun and when he would not, they shot him.

The suspect died at the scene. He has not been identified yet.

North Little Rock police are still on the scene interviewing witnesses.

UPDATE: New information reveals three officers who'd been on coffee break surrounded the man, who may have threatened suicide.
