LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Authorities in Kentucky say a man has been shot and killed by police in Louisville.
Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad tells news outlets the shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. Monday.
Officers responded to an apartment for a domestic dispute when Conrad says a man came out of the home armed with a knife and another machete-like weapon.
Conrad says officers ordered the man to drop the weapons but he did not.
He says the man then advanced toward the three police officers. Conrad says two of the officers shot at the man, killing him.
Officials have not released the man’s identity. Conrad says the man was black. The races of the officers have not been released.
Police say all three officers were wearing body cameras.
The shooting remains under investigation.
