A reunion turned deadly for a Newark man visiting family for a wedding in Houston, Texas.

Police shot 26-year-old Labaran Idakoji to death Thursday night during a domestic dispute that spiraled out of control.

Officials say Idakoji had stabbed his two brothers and his father. They say when they arrived, other family members were defending themselves with clubs, and metal pipes.

Officers say they opened fire on Idakoji when he lunged at them with his knife.
