SALT LAKE CITY – South Salt Lake police say a man who armed with a sword lunged at officers, who shot and killed him.
Officers were called after the man was seen throwing things out a window and waving several blades Monday. He barricaded himself inside the apartment for an hour and a half before he briefly came out and then quickly went back inside.
Police followed him inside, where the man hit one of the officers on the arm with the sword. The other officer shot the man.
Both officers are on routine administrative leave as the shooting is investigated.
