Man killed in Tulsa Police shooting

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police say an officer shot and killed a man who allegedly pulled a knife on officers who were doing a welfare check.

Detective Dave Walker says officers were called to a Tulsa apartment complex Tuesday night on reports that the man was suicidal. Walker says  the man grabbed a knife and started running toward officers.

That's when an officer fired at the man.

Police say the man was taken to a Tulsa hospital where he later died. Police have not yet released his name or the name of the officer involved in the shooting.
