Chicago police shot and killed a man they say was chasing paramedics with a knife in Englewood and then threatened officers.

It happened at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday near 71st St and South Racine.

Officers responded to a call of a person stabbed and found 62-year-old Michael Myers with the knife.

Police say Myers also jumped on and off a moving fire truck.

They shot him when he refused to drop the knife and approached officers.

Myers died at Christ Hospital.
