    An armed man was fatally shot by police after they say he fired shots at officers in Napa Tuesday afternoon.

    The shooting and investigation in the area of Bueno Street and Linda Vista Avenue prompted nearby West Park Elementary to be placed on lockdown at about 2 p.m. The Napa Valley Unified School District said the lockdown at the school was lifted about an hour later.

    Police also shut down Linda Vista Avenue from West Park to West Pueblo avenues during the investigation.

    Officers initially responded to several 911 calls reporting a man shooting a gun in the area. When officers and deputies from the Napa County Sheriff's Office arrived, the man began shooting at them as he was driving away from a home, police said.
