Jeffrey Relitz was shot and killed by Blue Springs police on Monday

Jeffrey Relitz reportedly told his wife that he was going to make police shoot him. The 48-year-old kept his word and confronted Blue Springs police with two handguns earlier this week after a standoff, the Star reported.

Officers reportedly tried to disarm Relitz with beanbag rounds, but they failed. That’s when the real bullets came out, and Relitz was shot once. He died early Monday morning.
