SAN BERNARDINO ( KTLA) -- A registered sex offender who removed his tracking device has been shot and killed by detectives.
41-year-old Nathaniel William Henry of Lucerne Valley had been sought by authorities since he removed his tracking device on Sept. 9.
Authorities say they finally caught up with the parolee in the 7600 block of Camp Rock Road Thursday.
Henry is said to have threatened officials with a handgun before detectives from San Bernardino's Specialized Enforcement Division opened fire.
Medical personnel were called to the home but Henry was pronounced dead at the scene.
In 2003, court records show Henry was charged with 10 sex crimes including two counts of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, two counts of sexual penetration with a foreign object of a person under the age of 16 and four counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child age 14 or 15.
It's unclear if there were multiple victims involved.
Henry eventually pleaded guilty to rape. He was sentenced to six years in prison.
Henry was also wanted for grand theft auto. ..Source.. by KTLA News
