Phoenix officer shoots, kills man armed with knife

PHOENIX — A Phoenix police officer has fatally shot a man when he
allegedly charged two officers with a knife.

Police say the shooting occurred late Sunday as officers arrived at a home in
response to a call from the man’s 54-year-old girlfriend.

They say the woman called police after escaping from the man when he attacked
her with a knife.

Police say the man then stabbed himself with the knife and was bleeding from
the wounds when officers arrived.

They say he ignored commands from police to drop the knife and was shot when he
charged officers.

He was declared dead at the scene.

Police identify him as 51-year-old Alfred San Antonio.

His girlfriend suffered minor injuries and police say neither officer involved
was injured.
