PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say the shooting death of a man who officials said attacked Philadelphia officers with a knife is being investigated by internal affairs and will be reviewed by the district attorney’s office.

Officials said 51-year-old Ronald Singletary had been served early Friday with a protection-from-abuse order at a southwest Philadelphia residence and left but returned a half-hour later.

Police said threatened officers and refused to leave the bedroom, so police forced their way in and saw him holding a 10-inch knife.

Police said he refused to drop the weapon and lunged at one of the officers, who used a stun gun, but he quickly recovered and moved toward the officers again, and an officer fired. Singletary was pronounced dead less than an hour later at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
