CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) - Ventura County sheriff’s officials say a deputy shot and killed an apparently suicidal man who charged at him with a knife on a busy Camarillo street.

Sheriff Geoff Dean said 23-year-old Bryant Neil Duncan of Camarillo stole a phone from a 7-Eleven store Wednesday and called 911 to say a crime was about to happen and he wanted police to kill him.

Dean said when the deputy arrived, Duncan asked to be shot.

The deputy initially kept his distance. But when the knife-wielding man came within two feet, the deputy opened fire.

Duncan was shot multiple times. The knife was recovered.

The deputy was unhurt.
