NYPD officials are investigating a fatal shooting by police involving an armed man outside his Brooklyn home on Thursday.

Sources say police arrived outside the home of 26-year old, Dwayne Browne after several 911 calls were placed from a woman who lived at the 943 Schenck Avenue address in East New York.

Family members say Browne was upstairs listening to music, when he went outside to check on a possible break-in after seeing two men running from the residence from his window upstairs.

The Post reports that Browne emerged onto the driveway armed with a .38 caliber gun. After resisting police warnings to drop the gun, an unidentified officer shot Browne in the chest.
