Twenty-nine-year-old Cordale Quinn Handy, of Waukegan, Illinois, died of multiple gunshot wounds early Wednesday after police say they were called to a report of a violent domestic incident.

Authorities say Officers Mikko Norman and Nathaniel Younce fired their weapons after Handy pointed a handgun at them twice after they told him to drop it.

A third officer didn't see the shooting. All three are on standard administrative leave.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says video from a nearby building shows Handy with a handgun, but doesn't show the full incident. Video and other data will be released after the investigation's closed.

Witnesses have said that a woman screamed that Handy's gun wasn't loaded.
