A Garden Grove police officer shot and killed a man who lunged at officers with a sledgehammer after leading them on a chase through a residential neighborhood Saturday, authorities said.

Police were called to Twin Lakes Park near Lampson Avenue and Haster Street about 12:46 p.m. after a caller reported a man "acting strangely," said Lt. David Kivler.
