The NYPD says six officers fired a total of 17 shots at a man in a deadly police-involved shooting outside a public housing complex in the Bronx.
 
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Friday a .45-caliber automatic and four .45-caliber shell casings were found near the man's dead body. Police say a holster was also found on the man's waistband.

  Police say two uniformed officers responded Thursday at about 11 p.m. to reports of shots fired outside the Castle Hill Houses and found a man matching the shooter's description. They say a witness told investigators the man fired at the officers and ran.
 
It wasn't immediately clear how many of the 17 shots struck the 26-year-old man. He was declared dead at the scene.
