BOONE, Iowa (AP) — Police say officers shot and killed a man in Boone after he charged at them while holding a knife.

Boone police on Monday released a description of events leading up to the Saturday shooting death of 48-year-old Timothy Wayne Anderson.

Police say officers were called to a home where a woman reported a man threatening her and another person with a knife.

Officers could hear yelling when they arrived at the home, and when they tried to enter Anderson ran out. After he ignored orders to drop the knife, police say “multiple” officers shot and killed Anderson.

The department placed six officers on paid leave while the matter is investigated.

An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday on Anderson.
