(Phoenix) Phoenix police shot a man after he allegedly swung a sword at them near 19th Avenue and McDowell on Thursday morning.
Sgt. Steve Martos says a sergeant saw a suspicious vehicle on the side of the road around 5:30 a.m., pulled over and called for back up.
When two more officers arrived, they approached the car and Martos says a suspect came out with a Samurai sword and began swinging it at them.
All three officers deployed their Tasers, but when they weren't effective, they shot at the suspect.
Martos says the man died at the scene. His name hasn't been released.
No officers were injured.
