DENVER - The man killed in an officer-involved shooting at Downing Street and East 29th Avenue has been identified.
The medical examiner's office identified the man Wednesday as 63-year-old Jack Snynder. He was also known as J. Marie Tuck.
According to police, they heard reports of Snyder threatening people with a knife near 29th and Downing. When they found Snyder they asked him to put down the knife.
Police say Snyder did not put the knife down, so officers tried to use their Taser and their gas gun. Neither of those had an effect on the suspect, according to police.
At that point, police say Snyder started towards officers with the knife. Police say they fired several shots around 11:32 a.m.
The man was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and later died from his injuries, according to Denver Police.
No officer was injured in the shooting.
