TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio police chief says a man who shot and killed a Toledo police officer during a two-hour standoff had been making incoherent statements and vowed he wouldn’t be taken alive.
Toledo Police Chief George Kral says officers shot and killed 27-year-old Christopher Anderson on Monday seconds after he opened his front door and began firing two handguns.
One of the shots hit Officer Brandon Stalker as he crouched behind a police vehicle. The 24-year-old who became an officer in 2018 died not long after.
Toledo’s police chief says family members told investigators that they believed Anderson suffered from mental illness.
