Around 6:15 a.m. Tuesday, a task force that included officers with the Metropolitan Police Department, U.S. Marshals Office and other agencies, approached a residence where the suspect was believed to have been staying.
The suspect exited a home and opened fire on officers, according to D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. The man was shot during the exchange of gunfire and pronounced dead a short time later. Police said they will release his name once his family is notified.
No officers were injured in the shootout.
K Street was closed for a time, from North Capitol to New Jersey Ave NW.
