WINCHESTER (CBS) – Winchester Police shot and killed a man at an apartment complex late Monday night after they say he came at officers with two knives.

A security guard at the Parkview Apartments on Swanton Street called 911 around 8 p.m. saying a resident had reported an issue in his unit.

Three officers went up to the apartment and when they went inside they said they found a 35-year-old man holding two knives.

He was ordered to drop the knives, but refused, so officers used a Taser on him twice. That didn’t stop him and police said he continued to come at them with the knives. An officer then shot the man. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died.

His name has not been released yet.

The three officers were taken to the hospital as a precaution. They will be on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
