WEST BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a man has died after being shot by officers he’d threatened with a shotgun following a confrontation with firefighters at his Long Island home.

Suffolk County police say Thomas J. Scimone died Thursday at a hospital. He had been in critical condition after the incident Saturday.

Police say he pointed a shotgun and threatened to shoot firefighters who responded to an alarm at his West Babylon home. They left.

Police say the 48-year-old Scimone ran into the neighborhood and brandished the gun at officers who found him on a nearby corner. He was shot multiple times.
