A man pointed a rifle at Beaumont police Tuesday night and they shot the man in the chest. The incident occurred in the 3100 block of East Lucas. The 80 year old man is in critical condition. Police chief Jimmy Singletary says the man refused to put down his rifle after police were called with a report of a man shooting at a neighbor across the street. The woman told a 911 operator that the man shooting at her was her landlord.
