KC police fatally shoot suspect who allegedly charged officers

From Christine Vendel and Tony Rizzo:

Kansas City police shot and killed a 40-year-old Kansas City man this morning during a confrontation at a vacant house in south Kansas City. Officers were called to the house in the 7800 block of E. 111th Terrace on a report of a prowler. The officers could hear people inside. A back door had been kicked in.

According to police, when officers confronted the men, one prowler was carrying a 3-foot metal pole. Officers told him to drop it, but he charged them instead, said Officer Darin Snapp, a police spokesman. One officer fired, striking the suspect, Snapp said.
