MESQUITE, Texas (AP) — Police in Mesquite fatally shot a man who they say ran toward officers with a knife and club.

The man’s family says he was carrying a walking stick and has a history of mental illness.

According to a statement from Mesquite police officers were dispatched to an apartment building Tuesday morning after receiving a call on which a woman could be heard screaming and crying.

Police said 27-year-old Ashton Pinke “charged” officers with a knife and a club and they shot him.
