A 27-year-old man killed by Montgomery County police officers was armed with an AR-15 rifle and wouldn’t comply with officers’ commands — prompting seven officers to fire their weapons on Monday night, officials said on Tuesday. The man, Antoine Duane Goodrum, of Germantown, was wearing a tactical vest and “carrying numerous extra magazines loaded with ammunition,” police said in a statement. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
About 9:15 p.m., police received a call from a man saying he had just shot and killed his grandmother and his roommate inside a residence along Red Robin Terrace in Germantown. Police arrived, determined the man had left, heard gunshots and set up a perimeter. The officers met up with Goodrum near the intersection of Great Seneca Highway and Grotto Lane. Officers negotiated with him for about 12 minutes before he was shot, authorities said.
