SALISBURY, Mass. (AP) — The Essex District Attorney says police responding to a domestic violence call in Salisbury fatally shot a man armed with a knife and a machete when he threatened officers who couldn't disarm him.
District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said the 29-year-old suspect allegedly had attacked and seriously injured a man and a woman before police arrived at the Cable Street location Thursday afternoon.
Blodgett said the man rammed a Salisbury police cruiser as he tried to flee, then got out and charged at the officers.
He said police tried to disarm him, even using a Taser, and then shot him.
Blodgett didn't identify who shot the man but said his office is investigating
