DUBLIN -- A man who attacked police with a baseball bat was shot and killed by officers responding to a domestic disturbance call Sunday evening, police said.

The name and age of the man was not released Sunday night.

About 6:15 p.m., officers responded to the 7000 block of Dublin Meadows Street and were met at the front door of the residence by a man holding a baseball bat.

One of the officers was immediately attacked by the man and the officer felt his "life was in immediate danger and fired several rounds" at the man, killing him, said Dublin police Lt. Herb Walters.

No one else was injured.

Alameda County Fire crews and Paramedics Plus responded, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing and additional information could be available Monday.
