Elmira Police have identified the man killed in a shootout with them Tuesday afternoon.
59-year-old Phillip VanCise was found dead inside his Oak Street home early Wednesday morning.
Police were initially called to VanCise’s home for a welfare check, as relatives were concerned he might attempt suicide, but police say VanCise threatened them with several guns.
Shots were exchanged between police and VanCise at around 6:30 Tuesday night.
State police are now handling the investigation.
