Springettsbury Township police chief Thomas Hyers says a 40-year old man was killed in an officer involved shooting at Kmart Saturday evening. The incident began as a retail theft in the store and police were called to the scene.
Officers tried to taser the suspect when he would not cooperate. The man then came at police with a knife and two officers opened fire, killing the suspect. His name is not being released at this time.
Pennsylvania State Police are taking over the investigation. This is standard protocol for officer involved shootings.
