JACKSONVILLE, Ark.—Authorities in central Arkansas say police shot and killed a man who was reportedly swinging a knife at officers.

Jacksonville Police Chief John Franklin says police tried to use a stun gun on the man before shooting him Sunday. Police have not yet released his name but say he was a white man in his 60s.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that police responded to a home on a report that a man was choking his sister.

Police say the man swung a knife at officers and one opened fire, striking him once.
