Two officers shot Thaddeus McCarroll, 23, multiple times, authorities said.
County police said the standoff began about 9:20 p.m. after officers responded to a report of a man wielding a knife and a Samurai sword locking his mother out of their home in the 9200 block of Riverwood Drive.
Charlene McCarroll told police her son was wandering the residence muttering about a “journey” and a “mission.” Police said she told them she wanted him removed from the house because of his behavior, which was not normal.
McCarroll, according to his mother, was also referring to a “black revolution.”
Police said responding officers tried to talk with McCarroll and have him come outside, but they were unsuccessful. At 10:30 p.m. the county’s tactical operations unit was called and began negotiations.
