An official at a Christian radio station in central Pennsylvania says police shot and killed a man who had threatened the station. WTLR station manager Mark VanOuse says police showed up and warned employees to stay inside around 10:30 a.m. Friday. He says the station got a tip that an armed man was on his way.

VanOuse says that within minutes he could hear shots being fired. He says police later told him the man was dead.

A witness tells the Centre Daily Times that the man appeared to challenge police with his Ford Bronco and rammed a police cruiser.

Witnesses say they heard about a dozen shots fired and that the man's vehicle ran into the side of a building near the station.
