A man identified as Carlos Munguia has been shot and killed after he pointed a gun at Police officers Friday night.
On Thursday night, officers responded to a shooting on Willow Creek Drive, where Juan Carlos Piedra Ceballos was found dead inside his car.
Witnesses told police the suspect was 40-year-old Carlos Munguia. The witnesses said that Munguia walked up to the car and began shooting. He then ran from the area.
