Autopsy Scheduled for Man Shot by Officer at Gas Station

Authorities say an autopsy has been scheduled for a man who was fatally shot by a police officer after pulling out a firearm during a confrontation outside a gas station in New Hampshire.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald says the Belmont Police Department officer recognized 46-year-old Joseph Mazzitelli as having outstanding warrants on Saturday. He says the officer confirmed it with his department and approached Mazzitelli, who displayed his weapon and was then shot.

Mazzitelli, of Belmont, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
