WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) Police say a security guard at a suburban Denver apartment complex shot and killed a man who appeared to be raising a handgun, but a family member says the man had only an Airsoft gun that fires BBs.
The shooting occurred early Sunday in Westminster.
Family members identified the man who was killed as 25-year-old David Ludewig.
Johnny Secrest, who says Ludewig was his cousin, tells KUSA-TV (http://tinyurl.com/no3a6rd ) the security guard confronted Secrest and Ludewig after Ludewig urinated near a garbage bin at the apartment complex.
Secrest says Ludewig pulled out the Airsoft gun and the guard opened fire.
The security guard's name hasn't been released.
