INGLEWOOD, Calif. — Police in southern California have fatally shot a man they say threatened an officer with an ax during a confrontation with police at a grocery store.

Witnesses told police the man had been stabbing himself with a knife Saturday night at City Farm Market in Inglewood. A store employee says the man confronted him and told him he “killed people,” then tried to stab the employee and walked away.

Police followed a trail of blood inside the store to a walk-in refrigerator in the market’s warehouse. Two officers shot the suspect multiple times and killed him after he allegedly came out of the refrigerator wielding an ax and lunged toward one of them.

Police are withholding the suspect’s identity pending notification of his family.
