Man Dies in Officer-Involved Shooting in Oceanside

Oceanside police have shot and killed a man after officers said he threatened them with a handgun and a knife. 

Police received a call Friday at about 12:15 a.m. of a man armed with a knife on Marron Road near College Boulevard, in the parking lot of the Kohl's Department store. 

According to police, responding officers found that man, and asked him to put down his knife, but he would not comply. 

Officers used less lethal force, but said it was not effective. 

They released two K-9s, which police said caused the suspect to drop his knife and take out a handgun from his waistband. 

Officers opened fire, killing the suspect. 

Police said they did recover a handgun in the parking lot. 

The suspect is not being identified until the next of kin is notified.
