Rockford police: Officers shot man with knife
ROCKFORD (AP) — Rockford police are now saying a man fatally wounded by officers did not use a child as shield as he allegedly charged them while waving a knife.
Four Rockford police officers shot and killed 31-year-old Demetrius Bennett on Thursday after a fifth officer sprayed him in the face with pepper spray.
Authorities say police were summoned to a domestic dispute and were confronted by Bennett. They say an officer attempted to subdue Bennett with pepper spray before he charged and was shot.
