Man shot and killed at Urban Bar-B-Que in Sandy Spring
Police in Montgomery County are on the scene of a deadly police-involved shooting in Sandy Spring.
Officers were called to Urban Bar-B-Que, located at 805 Olney Sandy Spring Road, just before 5 p.m. Wednesday.
When police arrived, an armed man was in the screened-in porch section of the restaurant. He was ordered to put the gun down, but, police say, he made a gesture as if he was going to use the weapon, so the two officers fired.
The man died at the hospital from his injuries.

No restaurant patrons were ever in danger during the incident, police say.
