THOMASVILLE (AP) — A man shot and wounded by Thomasville police officers earlier this week has died.
A Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center spokeswoman said Scott William Muntz, 41, died Tuesday.
Officers had gone to Muntz’s home Monday night to check on him and he threatened to harm himself. Police later heard a gunshot.
They say came out of the house with a pistol in his hand. They say they fired when he refused to drop the gun.
Four Thomasville police officers have been placed on administrative leave while the State Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the shooting. The officers’ names have not been released.
