Calif. Officers Shoot, Kill Man with Knife on Train

March 10, 2014  | 

The man fatally shot by Sacramento police aboard a light-rail train Saturday night lunged at officers with a knife and implored them to shoot him, police said Sunday.

Police have not released the name of the 51-year-old man who died at UC Davis Medical Center late Saturday after a confrontation with officers that shut down light-rail service for hours afterward, the Sacramento Bee reports.

At 9:15 p.m., three Sacramento police officers assigned to the Regional Transit police services division responded to a report of a man with a knife aboard a train.

Good to hear the Officers are ok, and no officers were injured. As for the p.o.s. it sounds like as if it were suicide by cop. Another chicken sh** coward!
