LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles authorities say a 41-year-old man has died two days after police shot him when he refused to drop a knife.

Coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter tells City News Service that Jason Davis died at a hospital Wednesday night.

Police said the shooting happened after officers responded to reports of an armed man at a coffee shop in the Venice area Monday afternoon.

Employees told reporters that the man, who appeared to be homeless, walked into the shop and then became unruly and pulled a knife. Police said officers opened fire after he continued advancing even after being hit with a stun gun.

Witnesses said the man had vomited on the sidewalk just before entering the shop.
