(CNN)Orlando police shot and killed a hospital patient who claimed he was armed -- but wasn't.

The ordeal started Monday morning when the patient at Orlando Regional Medical Center started telling staff that he had a gun and would "shoot anyone who comes near him," Police Chief John Mina said.

Mina did not say what type of medical condition the man admitted to the Florida hospital had.

At one point, Mina said, the man in his mid-30s said something like, "It's going to end today."

The man claimed he was a suspect in homicide case, though police are not sure which case he was referring to.

When police tried to approach the man, he "made movements consistent with pulling or reaching for a firearm," Mina said. That's when three police officers shot and killed the man -- who turned out to be unarmed.

Sad that one of my first questions was, what races were the cops and the patient?

People will assume that it was racism if it was a white cop and a black patient.

Others will say the patient was mentally ill if he's white, but won't say that if he's black.

Fucked-up world we inhabit ...

That’s why it’s always better to leave colour out of it and just discuss the story.

Suspect

"Suicide by cop"  ???

He did say that it was "going to end" that day..

So, one way or another, it sounded like he wanted to die, and was deliberately attempting to bring on his own demise.

Yes, and you can depend on the southern cops to fulfill their role.
