Texas police shoot, kill man who swung machetes at vehicles

Posted: Updated:

GARLAND, Texas (AP) - Police in North Texas have shot and killed a man who witnesses said was armed with two machetes that he swung at passing vehicles.
    
Police in Garland said in a statement that witnesses reported the man was striking vehicles with the machetes Tuesday along a service road adjacent to Interstate 30.
    
The man walked toward officers who responded to the scene and ignored commands to drop the weapons.
    
Authorities say one of the officers, a 27-year veteran of the department, fired and struck the man, who died at the scene.
    
The man's name has not been released and it's not clear why he was in the roadway armed with the weapons.
    
The officer who shot him has been placed on administrative leave as the investigation continues.
