ST. THOMAS, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police said troopers shot and killed a central Pennsylvania man during a standoff that lasted more than five hours on Labor Day.

Police said the 47-year-old man had an aggravated assault warrant out for his arrest after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. The man has not been identified by authorities.

Troopers said the man barricaded himself inside the home but eventually ran outside holding several weapons. Troopers opened fire because they said he ignored orders to stop.

No one else was injured. State police and the Franklin County district attorney are continuing to investigate.
