An alleged drunk man was killed by police after he made an "aggressive movement" towards officers outside a Hudson Valley restaurant.

On Tuesday around 11 a.m., State Police in Poughkeepsie and Dutchess County 911 received call which reported a drunk man with a knife was threatening a woman at Coyote Flaco Restaurant in Stanfordville.

Trooper Katherine Gorey responded to the restaurant and found 41-year-old Jaime Lopez of Standfordville next to the driver’s door of a car occupied by a woman, police say.

Trooper Kevin Wolensky arrived at the location soon after and also attempted to talk with Lopez to figure out what was going on, according to State Police.

Lopez didn't listen to verbal instructions from the troopers. When he made what police describe as an "aggressive movement" towards the officers, trooper Wolensky fired two shots, striking Lopez, officials say.

Lopez was taken to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital where he later died. The woman inside the car wasn't injured, according to police.

The investigation into the incident is continuing and State Police have been in contact with the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office, as well as the NYS Attorney General’s Office.

An internal State Police administrative investigation is also being conducted by our Professional Standards Bureau, which police say is customary when an officer is involved in a shooting.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact State Police in Poughkeepsie at 845-677-7300.
