Police in Fla. fatally shoot man threatening people with metal saw

The Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Fort Lauderdale police say one of its officers fatally shot a man allegedly threatening people with a metal saw. Authorities say they got a call about 11 pm Saturday from residents saying Gary White was confronting them with the weapon yelling, "I'm going to kill you."

White apparently began approaching officers and ignored orders to drop the weapon. That's when he was shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A police spokeswoman wouldn't say how many officers were involved or how many times White was shot. Authorities don't believe he knew anyone he threatened. An investigation continues.
