A man was shot and killed by police inside a New Jersey public library on Friday.
The incident began when two police officers spotted the suspect Kevin K. Allen walking into the Lyndhurst Public Library at about 2:30 p.m., according to NBC New York.
The officers then tried to detain Allen on the top floor of the library. Allen struggled against the officers, prompting them to deploy pepper spray and a baton, NBC New York reported.
Allen then pulled out a knife at the officers. The officers then shot and killed Allen.
“He brandished the knife, the officers deployed pepper spray and batons, Mr. Allen still went after them aggressively and left them no choice but to deploy deadly force,” Lyndhurst Police Chief James O’Connor told ABC 7.
