Wayne Malone was shot dead by police on Thursday after a 911 domestic disturbance call was placed from a woman who sounded like she was being strangled.
The Pioneer Press article starts off with a day-in-the-life description of Malone, 55, portraying him as a stand-up citizen that was a "helpful neighbor and a man who was protective of his family." He was a Navy veteran that lives with his wife and college-age daughter, shovels his sidewalks in the winter and patrols his building's perimeter for safety.
He also threatened to kill the residents of his building last summer.
According to Roseville police, Malone was brandishing a pistol in a threatening manner in the doorway of his apartment when they arrived at his complex on Larpenteur Avenue. Police fired up to eight shots and hit Malone twice the Pioneer Press reported.
Police then evacuated the three-story building's 40 residents for more than seven hours until the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension processed the scene.
According to Malone's brother, Charles, Malone's wife and daughter both said they didn't place the 911 call.
