A Canal Fulton police release says officers responded around 6 p.m. Saturday to an apartment after a complaint about 39-year-old Gabriel Mayberry making threatening statements to harm himself and others.
Police say officers began talking to Mayberry through a window and he made suicidal threats. Police say they were fired at through a door with a single gunshot, and a "projectile" from that gunshot struck a sergeant in the foot.
Authorities entered the apartment shortly before 9 p.m. and found Mayberry with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He died at the scene.
The sergeant was expected to fully recover.
Canal Fulton is roughly 50 miles (81 kilometers) south of Cleveland.
