  • Police Shoot Man with Ax

    WTOP delivers the latest news, traffic and weather information to the Washington, D.C. region. See today’s top stories.

    GLENN DALE, Md. (AP) - Prince George's County Police say officers shot and killed man who went toward police with an ax outside an in-home day care.

    Police say they were called to the day care in Glenn Dale about 3 p.m. Thursday. Officers say the man was trying to take his children from the day care, but the provider called the mother, who told the provider not to give children to the father.

    The day-care provider called police. The man, who had left before officers arrived, returned shortly after.

    Police say the man got out of his car carrying an ax, and moved toward three officers. The officer shot the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

    No one else was injured. The incident is under investigation.

    And you might meet 'em both if you show up here not welcome son.

    They should've just shot the axe out of his hand.

    The headline makes me think of that one scene from 'Hot Fuzz':

    Andy: He shot a drug dealer with a Kalashnikov.
    Danny: Woah...where'd you get that!?
    Nicholas: The OFFENDER had the Kalashnikov.

    Or are MD departments issuing these now:

        This happened in Washington State sometime in Early march as well. What the heck do you expect if you come at an officer with an ax....They certainly are not going to wait and see what happens like kitty here:

        **Edit come to think of it, maybe it was a hatchet...
