Ontario police have fatally shot a man they say pointed a knife at them at a gas station near the Ontario Mills mall.
Officers arrived at a Mobil gas station on the 4300 block of Ontario Mills Parkway around 10:45 p.m. Thursday after receiving calls about a man threatening customers with a knife and demanding money, Ontario Police Officer Eliseo said Guerrero.
When police arrived and made contact with the man, he “attacked” them with a knife in his hand, Guerrero said.
The police opened fire and began beating the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to officials, no customers or officials were injured in the shooting.
A number of grocery stores were robbed earlier this week, but police say the incident is unrelated to these crimes, which saw two people shot dead.
“This incident has nothing to do with the outstanding 7-Eleven robbery suspect,” Guerrero said.
