ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - Northeast Florida deputies fatally shot what authorities say was a possibly suicidal man armed with a large knife.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office reports that a woman at the World Golf Village resort in St. Augustine called deputies Monday afternoon to report that a man there was threatening to hurt himself. When deputies arrived at their condo, officials say the knife-wielding man confronted the deputies, prompting them to shoot the man.

Officials weren’t immediately naming the dead man. The Florida Times-Union (https://goo.gl/jp8W4R ) reports that the shooting remains under investigation.
