Police say an Omaha man sought on suspicion of several crimes has been shot and killed at a house.

Authorities say officers encountered 30-year-old Willie Michalak outside the Omaha house yesterday afternoon. A police spokeswoman says officers fired after "some sort of threat."

An arrest warrant for Michalak included charges of burglary, theft, habitual criminal and fleeing in a vehicle to avoid arrest.

The shooting is under investigation.
