We're not reporting the suspect's name due to his history of mental illness, but the police report states that not only the suspect claimed to have a knife, but also a gun.
Police say the gun was never recovered and the suspect refused to drop the knife each time he was asked.
Police say the suspect did start coming toward officers aggressively.
