WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) — Police in Colorado say officers shot and killed a man after he charged at them with a knife.

The Westminster Police Department said the officers went to an apartment building Tuesday after a man called police to report that a man with a knife was in his unit.

In a statement, the department said officers found an apartment with the front door forced open. Police say another apartment door was slightly open and a man “armed with a knife, charged at the officers.”

Police say two officers fired.

Names of the man who died and the officers have not been released.

It’s not clear whether the apartment owner and the man who officers shot had any relationship.

Police say the officers and the apartment owner were not hurt.
