Chicago police shot and killed a man in Vittum Park after he allegedly lunged at police with a large butcher knife in the city’s Garfield Ridge neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Officers were responding to a person stabbed around 1:40 a.m. near the park at 4899 S. Lavergne Ave., Chicago police said.

CPD Supt. David Brown spoke Saturday morning after police fatally shot a man they say lunged at officers with a knife.

After treating the victim, who was stabbed in the hand, officers searched for the suspect who was located near 49th and Lavergne, according to police.

Preliminary information from the Civilian Office Police Accountability shows officers attempted to apprehend the man, who was still armed with the knife when a struggle ensued and officers tased him.

The man continued to attack officers with the knife, resulting in two officers discharging their firearms, according to COPA.

The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body and was pronounced dead on the scene a short time later, police said.
