San Bernardino police shoot, kill man they say wielded knife – Press Enterprise

A man who threatened family members with a knife and then wielded it at police was shot to death by officers late Friday, Nov. 27, the San Bernardino Police Department said.

Officers responded to the 2300 block of W. Adams Street after relatives reported that they had locked themselves in bedrooms because Nicolas Segura, 27, was possibly under the influence and was threatening to stab them, a news release said.

Officers arrived to find Segura in the driveway, still armed with the knife.

“Segura refused to comply with all commands given by the officers, and he charged at the officers while armed with the knife. An officer-involved shooting occurred at that time,” the release said.

Segura was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Police on Saturday released a photo that they said shows Segura holding the knife and a photo of the knife they say he held.
