SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A police officer fatally shot a black man in South Bend, Indiana, the city where Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (BOO’-tuh-juhj) is mayor.
Buttigieg returned Sunday to South Bend, where he said the death would be thoroughly investigated. He has also canceled a Monday campaign stop in New York.
The St. Joseph County prosecutor’s office says police responded Sunday to a call about a suspicious person going through cars.
An officer confronted a man in a vehicle in an apartment building parking lot. The prosecutor’s office says the man exited the vehicle and approached the officer with a knife raised and the officer opened fire.
The man, identified as 53-year-old Eric Jack Logan of South Bend, died later at a hospital.
Authorities have not released the officer’s race.
