YORK, Pa. (AP) – State police say a 28-year-old man shot and killed by police Saturday afternoon outside his home was carrying a knife.
The York Daily Record/Sunday News reported Sunday that the shooting occurred as city officers were responding to a call about a man acting in a threatening manner.
State police tell the paper that Dequan Williams was told to drop the knife several times and that he was hit with a stun gun before two officers fired at him.
Authorities didn’t say how many shots were fired or how many times Williams was struck.
The officers aren’t being identified, and they’re currently on administrative leave.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
