A man armed with a knife was shot and killed by DeKalb County police officers early Sunday morning.
The man pulled a knife on three women at a Chevron gas station in the 4400 block of Glenwood Road around 8:30 a.m. Two of the women flagged down two police officers at an Exxon gas station across the street, according to DeKalb County police spokesman Lt. C. Rorey.
The two officers, one who was in training, approached the man at a business next door to the Chevron station and gave him repeated instructions to drop the weapon, according to Rorey. The man didn't drop the weapon, and instead, came at the officers, Rorey said.
"Both officers opened fire on the suspect," Rorey said. He was taken to Grady Hospital where he later died, according to Rorey. Police have not identified the man who was fatally shot.
