CANON CITY, Colorado — Canon City police say an officer shot and killed a 28-year-old man who charged him during a disturbance, marking the second officer-involved shooting in the city in less than a week.

Officers were responding to a report that a man with a knife was making threats Thursday morning. Investigators tell the Daily Record (http://bit.ly/1DjcaKl ) the suspect, whose name has not been released, was shot in the chest when he charged the officers and made threatening gestures. He died at a nearby hospital.

On Saturday, officers responded to an armed robbery at a store, and police say the suspect, 32-year-old Hudson Clark, was shot five times after he stabbed an officer below the left armpit with a 3-inch blade.

Clark is expected to recover.
