A man holding a burning gas can, who charged at police, was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy, authorities in Maine said.

The 65-year-old man called the Waldo County Dispatch Center on Monday afternoon and said he was going to burn down his apartment building in Belfast if law enforcement did not respond, the county sheriff's office and the Belfast Police Department said in a joint news release.

The man continued to threaten to burn down the building as sheriff's deputies and police arrived, the news release said. As they entered the building, the man “charged the officers with a gas can that was on fire,” and a deputy shot and killed him, it said.

The man was identified as Daniel Ryan. A search did not immediately find a phone number for him or family members.
