Police were called to assist state sheriffs with a man who was threatening another man with a machete and shears. The man had taken hedge shears apart and had half of it with a sharpened blade that was about two feet long. Police used pepper spray on the man after asking him to walk away from the weapons, but it was not effective. The man reportedly was ordered to move away from the weapons, but he did not comply. As officers approached the man to arrest him, he allegedly picked up one of the weapons and struck an officer in the torso. A second officer reportedly shocked him with a stun gun, and a third officer shot and killed him.
