Officers received a call at 4:18 a.m. in which the caller claimed he had killed his father and brother, police said. After about 10 minutes of negotiating with the man and issuing commands to disarm, officers approached the man and used less-lethal rounds of impact munitions as the man approached the house, but he blocked them with a chair in his hand. Officers also used a stun gun. When Victor Ancira allegedly raised his pickax against the approaching officers, he was shot and killed.
