At about 5:25 p.m., two Ingleside District police officers went to a home on Maynard Street in response to a call about a man who was drinking alcohol and taking medications, police Lt. Lyn Tomioka said.
When officers tried to check on the man, he confronted them with a machete, she said.
Witnesses said the officers gave verbal warnings and commands, but the man continued to advance, according to Tomioka. One officer fired three shots at the man and hit him.
The officers requested an ambulance and began administering CPR, but the man died at the home, Tomioka said.
