Police in Ohio shoot dead a man they say attacked officers with a knife

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio say officers shot and killed a man they say came at them with a knife after first trying to stop him with a Taser. Police in Columbus received several calls Monday evening about a man driving at vehicles in the middle of the street with a knife. Sergeant Joe Albert says when officers arrived, the man drove away. Albert says the man eventually stopped and started walking toward traffic with the knife. One officer fired a Taser, but the man turned and attacked the officers, who then fired their guns at him.
