About 6 p.m., a man was shot to death less than two blocks from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood home. The 25-year-old was in a vehicle when another vehicle approached, and someone in that vehicle fired shots, police said. The victim drove to the 1300 block of East 50th Street, where the vehicle came to a stop, police said.
Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said, according to witnesses, an SUV headed south on Western crossed the center line and struck a northbound #49 Western bus near 50th Street.
Officers ordered the man to put the knives down, and he moved toward police “in an aggressive manner.” Police opened fire on the man “in fear for the life of officers and occupants in the residence,” killing him, according to the statement from police.
