ANNAPOLIS -- A man who allegedly threatened his father with a butcher knife, then told two Anne Arundel County police officers he was going to kill them, was shot yesterday by one of the officers.
When police arrived about 3:30 p.m. at a house in the 300 block of Forest Beach Road, they saw a 29-year-old man armed with a butcher knife, chasing his father in the yard, said Capt. Michael Fitzgibbons.
Captain Fitzgibbons said James Daniel Johnson Jr. ignored the officers' order to drop the knife. Mr. Johnson allegedly told the officers that if they did not leave, he would kill them.
