A Philadelphia police officer shot and killed a man armed with a knife after a stun gun couldn't stop the suspect, investigators said.
The shooting took place early Friday at a rooming house on South 51st Street in the Kingsessing neighborhood. Two 12th District officers served the suspect with a restraining order around 1:30 and the man left without issue, police said.
But the man returned more than an hour later which led to officers -- including one of the ones who had earlier served the restraining order -- returning to the scene.
"That person did produce a (10-inch) knife and lunged at the officers," Commanding Officer of Public Affairs Sekou Kinebrew said.
One of the officers used a stun gun on the suspect, who quickly recovered and again went at the officers, investigators said. The other officer opened fire.
The man died a short time later at a hospital. His name was not immediately released.
The shooting remained under investigation Friday.
