State Police say a trooper shot and killed a man Sunday afternoon in an armed confrontation in the Aroostook County town of Ludlow. 

Alan Gillotti Senior (52) of Ludlow was shot by Sgt Joshua Haines outside a mobile home.

As is standard with all police involved shootings, the Maine Attorney General's Office is investigating and the trooper has been placed on paid administrative leave. Troopers had gone to Gillotti's home investigating an armed home invasion in Bridgewater earlier in the day.
