A man is dead after being shot by Mesa police in a reported barricade situation Thursday night.

Police say they were originally called to a report of shots fired around 9:30 p.m. near Mesa Drive and Brown Road.

The caller told 9-1-1 a woman came to her apartment after a domestic dispute with a man, and the caller also reported hearing a gunshot coming from the suspect's apartment.

Police arrived and when they went to 28-year-old Shawn Gagne's apartment, he reportedly came to the door with a gun and shut the door, starting a barricade situation.

Authorities later learned Gagne had multiple handguns inside the apartment and made multiple threats to his girlfriend.

SWAT officers took over the scene and sometime during negotiations, a total of eight officers exchanged gunfire with Gagne.

Gagne died after being hit by gunfire, according to officials.

No police officers or civilians were hurt during the incident.
