LIECESTER, MA – Police say a man rammed his SUV repeatedly into the front door of the Liecester Police Department headquarters, breaching the lobby and exited his vehicle with what appeared to be a rifle.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said, “He repeatedly rammed those doors until he gained entry with his vehicle into the building.”

“When the officers arrived at the police station the vehicle was in front of the doors,” District Attorney Early added. “The man exited the vehicle and immediately shouldered what appeared to be a rifle and aimed it at the police officers.”

Two police officers shot the man who later died at the hospital. The incident happened at 6:15 am today. The man had a pending traffic case in the local court. Visit the Boston Herald for updates on this story.
