Man from Suburban St. Louis shot and killed by police detective

(AP) — St. Louis County officials say a police detective shot and killed a man who charged at several officers trying to arrest him. 

A Maryland Heights detective shot the 48-year-old man Wednesday. 

County police say detectives had been searching for the man in connection with several crimes in various jurisdictions. 

Police say that when detectives tried to arrest the man as he left a business, he charged at them with an “edged weapon.”
