Man With Machete Killed by Police at Boulder

October 6, 2016

A man with a machete was shot and killed by police officers when he was wielding the weapon in the sports medicine facility of the University of Colorado at Boulder, The Denver Post reported. “Given the weapon the suspect was armed with, given the statement already made to our initial victim and given the nature of how he was maneuvering through the Champions Center, we believe it was in the best interest of the university that it was a deadly force situation,” said the university's campus police chief, Melissa Za, at a news conference.
