Ivan Bliznetsov, ThinkStock[/caption]A gunman was killed early Wednesday morning after a threatened 'shoot-out' with Greeley Police.

As the Denver Channel reported, Greeley Police officers killed a military veteran who was heavily armed, and threatened "a shootout" overnight.

The incident happened just before 3 a.m. Wednesday when a caller reported that their relative was outside a home off of Fourth Street with two or three guns.  The gunman appeared to be intoxicated and a military veteran suffering from PTSD.

When officers arrived, the man was ordered to raise his hands.  Instead, he pointed a long gun at the officers, police then opened fire on the man.

As an officer involved shooting, the incident will be investigated by the Weld County District Attorney's Office.
