Man shot by Fresno Police identified

FRESNO, Calif.

Police say they were dispatched to the area after receiving a call about a suspicious man, running in the street. When the first officer arrived, the suspect was seen holding a knife, and pounding on a vehicle with an innocent bystander inside. The second officer to arrive on scene opened fire after the suspect lunged at him.

That officer is on administrative leave. There is no word on what may have led to Sanchez's strange behavior.
