Authorities say a Massachusetts man who was shot by police after brandishing a knife at two officers has died.
The prosecutor's office say officers shot Calabro near 209 Court Street after he brandished a knife at two Brockton police officers who were called to the area on a report of a man with a knife.
The Brockton Enterprise has reported that police were responding to what was described as a behavioral health issue earlier that day, and that one of the first officers on scene requested for an officer with a Taser to respond to the scene.
