The suspect then raised the handgun he was holding and multiple officers from the Redding Police Department fired their weapons at the suspect. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. No officers were injured in the incident. 

Authorities have not identified the suspect killed in the incident. 

The investigation is ongoing. Stay tuned for updates.
