EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) - Police officers fatally shot a man who confronted them with a knife during a disturbance call in central Florida.

Edgewater police Capt. Joe Mahoney says the shooting happened early Friday as officers were responding to a disturbance call in the city south of Daytona Beach.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1D6eGy9 ) reports 34-year-old Trevor Silvia was hostile when police arrived and attempted to barricade himself in the garage. Officers fired stun guns at him but he pulled a probe out of his chest and aggressively approached the officers with a 12-inch knife. That’s when officers fired.

He was taken to a hospital where he died.

Both officers have been placed on paid leave, pending an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
