Knife-Wielding Man Fatally Shot In Calif. Station

May 20, 2013  | 

Alhambra (Calif.) Police officers fatally shot a man who pulled a large kitchen knife out of his backpack in police headquarters on Friday morning.

Officers shot and killed Tony Nim, 35, at about 7:30 a.m. Nim died at the scene, reports the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

The fatal confrontation escalated after Nim appeared incoherent and didn't respond to officers' commands. The commands were given in several languages. Nim pulled the knife, which was a foot long, from his backpack. At that point, three officers opened fire.
