Police shoot dead 68 year old man in Aargau
Investigations are continuing after Aargau police shot dead a 68-year-old man in the town of Suhr.
Reports suggest the man was hit five times after he approached officers armed with a knife. One witness told the press he was shouting ‘I’m going to kill you’.
The police had been called by the man’s partner – a 37-year-old woman – as he was threatening to kill himself.
The police say the couple were known to them. In April the woman was questioned after she attacked a shopper with pepper spray.
