Police: Officers fatally shoot man with machete

PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say two officers shot and killed a man who attacked and wounded the officers with a machete.

The incident happened just before midnight Monday after the officers went to an apartment complex in southwest Phoenix in response to a domestic violence call.

Sgt. Trent Crump says the man was hiding in a bathroom in an apartment and attacked the officers as they checked the welfare of a woman.

The man was fatally wounded when the officers shot him.

Crump says both officers are doing well. One was cut on the arm and the other on a hand and on his torso.

Police did not immediately identify the dead man.
