Man stabs sister, mother, is shot and killed by police

RICHMOND — A man who stabbed his mother and sister and approached a Richmond police officer with a knife was shot and killed Monday, police said.

Police responded to a call about the stabbing at 403 Turpin Drive, Apt. 4, at 6:50 a.m. The women had been stabbed multiple times with a military-type knife, police said.

An officer, whom Richmond police did not identify, was confronted by a knife-wielding man who would not respond to the officer’s commands and continued to advance in a threatening manner, Richmond police said in a statement. The officer shot the man once in the torso, and other officers arriving on the scene helped to secure the suspect and called for medical assistance.
