WINCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say a man has been shot and killed by police in the town of Winchester after threatening the officers with a knife.

The incident happened shortly after 9 p.m. Monday in an apartment building on Keene Street after four police officers from Winchester and Swanzey responded to a call for a family dispute.

According to a statement issued by New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney and police, a woman outside the apartment told the officers that her husband was inside and armed with a knife.

Inside the apartment, police tried to convince the man to drop the knife and even used TASERs, but when he continued to advance on police, authorities said one of the officers opened fire, killing the man.

None of the officers was injured.

The dead man’s name was not immediately released.
