KCK police identify man shot to death

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kansas City, Kansas, police say a sword-wielding man was shot to death after he threatened people with a sword.

Police announced Monday that 50-year-old Carlos Davenport, of Kansas City, Kansas, died in the shooting on Saturday.

Two officers arrived at an apartment complex after a woman called to say a man was trying to stab her sister. The department says in a news release that the officers heard screaming as they ran up to a second floor apartment.

After the women came out of the apartment, Davenport followed with a sword raised above his head. Police say the man was shot after he ignored the officer’s demand to drop the weapon. The two women and officer were not injured.
