Olathe police fatally shoot armed man who had attacked older man

Last night, Olathe police fatally shot an armed man while responding to a disturbance in the 400 block of North Logan.

The officer is on paid administrative leave -- which is a standard step after any incident like this -- while a team of police from other jurisdictions review the shooting.
