KC police shoot man with sword
KANSAS CITY (AP) – Kansas City police officers fatally shot a man they said swung a sword at them.
A police spokesman said two officers responded to a call early yesterday about a person yelling in the street. When they arrived, they said, the man was standing in the street holding an object later determined to be a sword. The officers chased the man on foot. When they tried to arrest him, they said, the suspect tried to hit them with the sword.
Officers shot the suspect, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
And here I was hoping that police had some sort of nifty weapon that could shoot swords. Instead, we have police shooting another random sword-wielder. !Que lastima!
