Authorities say a central Illinois man has died in an officer-involved shooting.
Tazewell County Chief Deputy Jeff Lower says that officers went to a house in rural Mackinaw Friday morning in response to a call of a possibly suicidal subject with a gun.
Lower says a 19-year-old man came out of the house and pointed a weapon toward at least one officer, and a Tazewell County sheriff's deputy then shot him in self-defense.
The man was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name hasn't been released. Lower said he had a history of mental problems.
Lower also says that a deputy also was transported to a hospital.
