Arlington police fatally shot a man who barricaded himself in a car after they say he fired at officers.

Police say the standoff started Thursday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. as a dispute between a man and a used car dealer at Galaxy Auto Sales on Division Street.

Officers approached the car and heard what sounded like someone chambering a round in a gun. They did not see a weapon but backed off and started treating it as an armed standoff.

After an almost two-hour long standoff, police say they shot tear gas into the car after the suspect started shooting at officers. Police then returned fire, fatally shooting the man.

Police recovered a shotgun from the scene. The suspect's identity has not been released.

No officers were injured.
