UPDATE, NOV. 21, 2:42 P.M.: A man who was reportedly chasing people down a street with knives before being shot and killed by at least one Garden Grove police officer has been identified as 31-year-old Jason Nuñez.

Police say an argument escalated into Nuñez giving chase to people who were not injured. Two kitchen knives were found near Nuñez after he was shot, police say.

ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 21, 9:54 A.M.: A man who was reportedly chasing people down the street with a knife Friday evening was shot and killed by a Garden Grove police officer, the department announced.

The dead man, who has not been identified, had also acted violently, broke windows and started a fire, reads a statement from Garden Grove Police Lt. Jeff Nightengale, the agency's spokesman.

Police received a call about the one-man-mayhem machine around 6:45 p.m., and he was confronted moments later at the intersection of Strathmore and Dorada. There, he was given "several commands" to drop his knife, failing to comply before an officer opened fire, according to Nightengale's statement.

The knifeman was pronounced dead at the scene. Garden Grove police are investigating the incident internally, but as with any officer-involved shooting the Orange County District Attorney's office is also launching a probe. Anyone with information that can help investigators is asked to call the Garden Grove Police Department at 714.741.5800.

I did know Jason Nunez. Apparently he didn't follow commands. He was under alot of stress and very depressed. He was using drugs or ever been violent in any way. It's so tragic that this happened.

Too bad you don't know what you are talikng about. You probably jump to conclusions about other things,too. Try stepping back and looking at the situation rationally, if you are capable.

I know a witness to the event and only one cop was there as he turned away from the prople he was chasing and came at the cop. He walked fifty feet to about fifteen feet from the cop, fisobeying commands to drop the knife. Fifteen feet is close. Time out. Taser, my ass.

Not sure if you realize, but when attempting to stop someone, you need to escalate the force to the degree that they will stop.  So if someone is using fists, you might use a taser or a baton.  If someone has a knife, you need to get more lethal, and a gun fits the bill.   Not many people know that a man with a knife can move 15 feet and stab someone in a blink of an eye.

Seems to me the officer did the right thing.

Hey Joe, 

A man who was reportedly ;chasing people down the street with a knife...had also acted violently...broke windows...and started a fire... And you call the Officer stupid? I'm going to step out on a limb here and say you're probably one of those people that would have blamed the cops for not using enough force had this guy killed somebody.
