NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Naperville police were justified in shooting and killing a troubled man who lunged at them with a knife, the victim’s brother said Tuesday.

"They had to do what they had to do," Joseph Ladew of Naperville said. "I understand it."

Two officers — one of whom was involved in a fatal suspect shooting nine years ago — shot 47-year-old William Ladew several times after responding to a report of a suicidal man shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday at an apartment on the 1100 block of West Ogden Avenue, Deputy Police Chief Gary Bolt said.
