CLIFTON PARK – Residents of a Clifton Park neighborhood are describing how the scene escalated throughout the afternoon Tuesday, leading up to police shooting a man.
It was on Cardinal Court, at a house at the end of the cul-de-sac.
As NewsChannel 13 first reported on Tuesday, police say Douglas Stewart III was standing in the yard holding a loaded rifle. They say when he refused to put the gun down, police fired.
This started as a domestic incident.
Neighbors say a woman who lives in the home was desperately looking for her children.
"She was not able to breathe, she was very panicky. She was looking for her children and she seemed very dazed and confused," said one woman.
