Man fatally shot in struggle with Lynn police

LYNN, Mass. (AP) — A man has died after being shot by Lynn police in a struggle.

The Essex County District Attorney’s office announced the man’s death and identified him as 30-year-old Denis Reynoso of Lynn. The DA’s office said it is investigating the shooting, as is protocol.

Police Chief Kevin Coppinger said at a news conference earlier that the man was shot late yesterday morning after three officers went to an apartment at the Kings Lynne complex on Newcastle Street for a report of disorderly conduct.

Coppinger said an officer shot the man when he allegedly grabbed another officer’s gun. He said three officers were treated at Union Hospital for minor injuries and released. They are on paid leave.

Neighbors said Reynoso was a National Guard member who lived at the complex with a woman and their two children.
