COLUMBUS, Ohio — A police union official says a bomb squad found containers of frozen urine in the vehicle of man who police say lunged at an officer with a knife and was fatally shot.

The local police union leader, Jason Pappas, says the suspicious material was confirmed as urine after the confrontation Wednesday at Port Columbus International Airport. It’s not clear why the man had those containers.

Investigators say he tried unsuccessfully to buy an airline ticket using a fake ID, then got into the fatal confrontation with airport police after returning to his illegally parked vehicle.

Police identified the man Thursday as 41-year-old Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed of the Columbus area.

Pappas says two officers fired at the man. They weren’t seriously hurt.
