California: Two officers fatally shot a man early today who ignored orders to surrender, endured a Taser shot and then lunged at them while brandishing a knife, according to the Long Beach Police Department. Police on routine patrol came across the man about midnight standing in the middle of a street with a knife and bleeding from the head, said officer Jason Wong. "The officers repeatedly ordered the individual to drop the knife, both in English and in Spanish. He seemed incoherent, uncooperative, and non-compliant,"
