Nashville Police Kill Man In Domestic Disturbance Call

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police said two officers shot and killed a Nashville man in self defense after they responded to a domestic disturbance call.

Nashville police said Alejandro Reyes Ayala was shot yesterday after he charged at two police officers with a large knife.
