Two men died -- one after being shot by police and another after being stabbed in his apartment -- in the South of Market neighborhood this morning in possibly connected incidents.

The man killed by police was shot around 4:30 a.m. after he came toward two officers wielding two large butcher knives, said Sgt. Neville Gittens. The other victim, a man who lived at a low-income housing building about a block away, was stabbed in his studio apartment around 4 a.m., according to the building's owner and police.

The Medical Examiner's office has not yet released the identity of the man who was shot, pending notification of his family.
