Monday, March 21, 2011

Cops shot and killed a man in the Bronx early Sunday after he allegedly refused to drop a knife when confronted by police who were called to the house on a domestic dispute.

The 46-year old was allegedly toting a six-inch knife that he refused to drop when ordered to do so, cops said. The man allegedly advanced toward officers and was then shot by police in the chest.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two knives were recovered from the scene: One that he was allegedly holding and another that he allegedly had used to attack his roommate, cops said.
