Boston Police report an officer shot the man to death around 3:10 p.m. at 77 Lenox St. in Roxbury as they investigated a domestic-violence complaint:
While en route, officers were informed that the male suspect had assaulted his girlfriend. Upon arrival, officers observed visible facial injuries to the female victim, and she directed officers to the suspect at 77 Lenox Street. Once inside, the officers attempted to place the suspect under arrest, at which point the suspect armed himself with multiple knives and lunged at the officers. As a result, one officer discharged his firearm, and the suspect was struck.
Both police and the Suffolk County District Attorney's office are investigating.
