The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released the name of a man killed in an officer-involved shooting last week in Calhoun.

He is identified as 21-year-old Daniel Tang of River Edge, New Jersey.

According to the GBI:

At around 2:00 a.m. on Thursday, a Calhoun Police Officer noticed a vehicle in front of the Battlefield Building Supply and that the front glass door of the business was smashed in.

Additional Calhoun Officers and Gordon County Sheriff Deputies responded and saw a man armed with a gun in the office area of the business.  

The officers gave the man verbal commands to drop the weapon for several minutes.  

The man pointed a rifle at the officers.  Officers shot the man who was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
