A man believed to be emotionally disturbed was shot and killed by police in Jersey City Friday evening.

Thought the details remain unclear, but authorities say police responded to a call that a man had barricaded himself in a building on Fowler Avenue, and in the course of trying to get the man out of the building, police fired on him, shooting him at least three times.
    
The man later died at a hospital.

An investigation into the shooting is underway.
