PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia police officer fatally shot a naked man who attacked him Sunday in the city's Olney section, a department spokesman said.

Fearing for his life, the officer fired four times, striking the man three times in the chest and an arm, Lt. Raymond Evers said.

The two had struggled over the officer's gun, and the victim remained aggressive after being Tasered, Evers said.
