KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City police say a man is dead after threatening a police officer with what looked like a sword and being shot by a different officer.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kari Thompson says officers responded to a home in northern Kansas City on Wednesday night shortly before midnight and found a man outside the rear of the residence.

Thompson says the man immediately became confrontational with officers and ignored their demands. She says the officers saw him in possession of a sword-like object, and one of the officers shot him after he threatened another with it.

The man died at the scene.
