RICHMOND, Va. — A man shot by a plainclothes Richmond police detective in Chesterfield County had approached the officer in a “confrontational manner” armed with a box cutter and a cigarette lighter resembling a pistol, authorities said yesterday.

The detective, who was working undercover with the city’s anti-gang unit, identified himself as a police officer and gave Mark Andrew Weaver several commands to stop Saturday, but he wouldn’t comply, said Chesterfield police Capt. Robert Skowron.
