The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says a 23-year-old man was shot and killed by officers after refusing their commands to drop two handguns he possessed outside a store in Junction City.

The KBI said Peter James Robbins died at the scene of the shooting shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday. He was from Fort Riley.

Junction City officers were responding to a requested welfare check at a home when another caller reported an armed disturbance blocks away outside a store.

Local police and Geary County deputies responded to that later call and found a man armed with two handguns on the sidewalk before "the confrontation escalated further," and four law officers fired at the man.
