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