A Hamilton County Sheriff's deputy shot and killed an armed man on Ebeneezer and Wesselman streets in Green Township on Friday shortly before midnight according to Hamilton County Chief Deputy Sean Donovan.
Donovan said the department was told the man was heavily armed and had barricaded himself in his residence some time before midnight when the Sheriff's department arrived.
Earlier in the evening the suspect had fired shots into his neighbor's yard, said Donovan.
Police negotiators asked the suspect to come out of the home unarmed. When the suspect came out he pointed a rifle and the unnamed deputy opened fire according to Donovan.
