LINCOLN, Calif. (AP) - Police in the Northern California town of Lincoln have shot and killed a man who reportedly warned in a video that he wouldn’t be stopped and came toward an officer with a knife.

The shooting took place around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of a McDonald’s restaurant in the Placer County town. Police say the man refused to put down a knife as he approached.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/2eOD1Ul ) that the man, identified by a friend as Brandon Millard, lived in a homeless camp and posted a profanity-laced Facebook video shortly before the shooting.

The video showed Millard brandishing what he said was a pellet gun and claiming people had tried to kill him. It ended with Millard saying: “The cops ain’t pulling me over.”
