OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A man suspected of trying to rob an Oakland burger restaurant at gunpoint before being shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy has been identified as a 32-year-old Oakland resident.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Department identified the man as Quincy Williams on Tuesday.

Sheriff's officials tell the Oakland Tribune ( Williams was dressed in all black when he entered Burger Boulevard around 10 p.m. Friday as the restaurant was closing.

They say he brandished a gun and demanded cash before getting into a struggle with restaurant employees. One employee allegedly grabbed Williams' gun while the other punched Williams.

Another employee rushed outside and found deputies who were conducting a traffic stop.

Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson says one of the deputies shot and killed Williams when he did not drop his gun as ordered.
