A man was shot and killed by San Bernardino police after he allegedly confronted officers with a baseball bat.

The incident happened Wednesday near the 1400 block of 16th Street. Two officers were called to the scene because of some sort of family dispute.

When they arrived, the suspect was in the garage with an aluminum baseball bat. Officers said they told the man several times to drop the bat, but he refused.

When he moved toward them, the officers opened fire. The suspect was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, but he died a short time later, officials said. The officers were not injured.

The case will be reviewed by the District Attorney's Office per department protocol.
