SummaryTwo officers, identified as 11-year veteran Epigmenio Canas and 6-year officer Shawn Sullivan, were called to 602 W. 9th Street for an individual threatening another person with a knife around 10:30 p.m. Prior to the officers arriving, they were advised that the caller had barricaded himself in his bedroom and the man with the knife was beating on the bedroom door. Officers were able to enter the house where they were confronted by Jennings, armed with the knife. Police say Jennings failed to comply with verbal commands to stop, rushed toward the officers, who then discharged their duty weapons.
