Davenport Officers Kill Suspect
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) -- Davenport police say a knife-wielding man shot by officers has died at a hospital.
Police say the officers were sent around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday to check a report about a man with a knife threatening another male who had barricaded himself in a bedroom. The officers entered the house and were confronted by the man with the knife.
Police say the man didn't obey the two officers' commands that he drop the knife and then came at the officers. Both fired.
Police say the man died later at Genesis East medical Center.
The names of the officers, the dead man and the man who called 911 have not been released.
County and state officers are investigating.
