A man was shot and killed yesterday at Port Columbus, after lunging at police officers while armed with a knife.

Earlier that day (around 12:45 p.m.), a man attempted to purchase a plan ticket with a woman’s ID. According to a release from the airport, “Airline personnel became suspicious, refused to sell him a ticket, and alerted Port Columbus police.” Around the same time, police where also looking into an SUV that had been parked illegally. And had called Jim Shriner, a tow-truck driver, to move the SUV.

The two reports came together when the man walked up to the SUV. He initially spoke to an officer, then took out a knife and lunged at the officer and attempted to stab him. The officer fired at the man, who dropped to the ground, but got back up and continued towards to officer. A backup officer responded and the man moved towards him, which caused the second officer to retreat backwards towards the terminal entrance where a third officer was. The third officer shot the man several times and killed him.

The officers approached the man to access his injuries and discovered multiple knives in his possession. They also discovered items that led them to contact the Columbus Fire Bomb Squad, who searched the man’s car and removed suspicious items from the scene.

No bystanders, or any of the officers were injured. The Columbus Division of Police Critical Incident Response Team is leading the investigation of the shooting and surveillance footage is being reviewed. (deb)

A local dog is saved after being stabbed in the head with a knife.

10TV reports a man called police after allegedly being attacked by two dogs. He told police he fended off one with a bottle and stabbed another with a knife.

Both dogs were taken to the Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center for care. The male dog, who was hit with the bottle, was released from the shelter without injury. The female dog, who was stabbed in the head with the knife, underwent a successful surgery.

Kaye Persinger, shelter director, told 10TV it's a "miracle" that the female dog survived the injuries she sustained.

According to Persinger, the female dog will be designated as dangerous despite her showing no signs of aggression at the shelter. Persinger even called the dog "sweet."

Persinger told 10TV she is confident the dog won't hurt anyone in the future.

The man who claimed he was attacked had small puncture wounds but refused treatment.

With less than three months until showtime, Sonic Temple has announced some major shakeups to the lineup.

Metallica has regretfully cancelled their headline performances at the rock and roll music festival, scheduled for May 15 and May 17.

"With a heavy heart, we write to inform you that due to the health and recovery efforts of James Hetfield, Metallica has to cancel their headlining performances," wrote Sonic Temple in a release.

"As part of my continuing effort to get and stay healthy, I have critical recovery events on those weekends that cannot be moved," wrote Hetfield in a statement.

In lieu of Metallica, Sonic Temple has booked Red Hot Chili Peppers to headline Friday, May 15, and Tool to headline Sunday, May 17. As scheduled, Slipknot will headline Saturday, May 16.

Lead singer Hetfield entered into rehab last September, and is optimistic about what the future will bring, he said.

"Like the moth into the flame, being human in this career has its huge challenges and can be difficult," Hetfield wrote. "Your understanding helps the healing."
