ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Allentown police say they shot and killed a man who was threatening officers with a machete.

Police are working to identify him.

Officers had responded to reports Thursday that a suspicious man was walking down the street with a machete. Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin says the man was combative and began threatening police officers with the weapon.

Martin says the assailant was hit with a stun gun, but it appeared to have no effect. Two officers then shot the man. He was pronounced dead at a hospital a few hours later.
