Man attacking cars with knife is shot, killed by police
Around 8:24 p.m. Thursday, an unidentified man was reported to be running in and out of traffic smashing a metal weapon on car windows, according to one driver.
“[I thought], ‘Oh my God, get me out of here.’ It was a scary feeling,” Priscilla Garcia told CBS LA of the moment she says the man came upon her car.
“When he did that, I looked at the cops to do something because he was not going to stop,” she said.
The man ignored orders once deputies arrived on the scene, continued his attack in the intersection of Shangri-La Drive and Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon County.
Police then opened fire on the man, shooting him multiple times in the chest after he charged at them with a knife. According to a press release, the man “appeared unscathed by the shooting,” and “continued his erratic behavior.”
The deputies then stepped back toward their squad cars when the man, now wielding a second weapon of a knife, charged at them again.
“The suspect was struck by gunfire multiple times on the upper torso,” according to officials.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said no one else was harmed during the incident.
