Northwestern Indiana Police Shoot Man Armed With Knife

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (AP)

Police in northwestern Indiana say officers have fatally shot a man armed with a knife who had chased an employee at a car dealership.

Northwest Indiana Major Crimes Task Force spokesman Greg Mance says the man was pronounced dead at a hospital following the midday shooting Wednesday at Art Hill Ford in Merrillville, about 30 miles southeast of Chicago.

The Lake County Coroner's Office identified the man as 30-year-old Jimmy Terry of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Mance says a 911 caller said a man armed with a knife was "chasing an employee" inside the dealership. Mance says that as officers arrived, Terry was driving away from the dealership and was shot during a traffic stop.

Mance declined to say what led officers to open fire.
