Two sheriff’s court services deputies fatally shot a man they were trying to evict from his apartment near downtown San Diego Friday morning, authorities said.

The 47-year-old black man, who had told the deputies he would shoot them if they came inside, retrieved a replica handgun from his room when the deputies forced their way into the home, San Diego police homicide Lt. Mike Holden said.

He said the deputies thought the weapon was a semi-automatic handgun.

Both deputies fired, striking the man several times. Medics took him to a trauma center, where he died. The deputies were not injured.
