BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Baton Rouge police say a security guard acted in self-defense when he shot and killed a man outside a local nightclub.

Cpl. Tommy Stubbs tells The Advocate police found 32-year-old Corey A. Kaufman of Baker lying beside his vehicle in the parking lot just north of the club early Sunday morning.

Stubbs says a security guard helped other guards remove Kaufman from the premises.

He says Kaufman, who had been banned from the club, had made verbal threats to the security guards as they walked him to his car.

Once inside his car, Stubbs said Kaufman retrieved a gun and pointed it at one of the security guards.

He says the security guard fired his weapon once, striking Kaufman in the chest. Kaufman died at the scene.
