Toxicology reports show a man shot by Las Cruces Police was drunk when he pointed what looked like a rifle at officers.

Jose Estrada was shot and killed outside his mobile home in July.

The rifle in the incident turned out to be a pellet gun.

Investigators recently found out Estrada told someone he was thinking of pointing a gun at officers so they would shoot him.

The Las Cruces Sun News reports the autopsy report found Estrada had schizophrenia.
