Rosendo Gino Rodriquez, 49, was fatally shot by MPD officers after he allegedly swung a machete at the police officers who had entered the home, according to a statement from the city.
Officers used non-lethal bean bags to try to make Rodriquez drop the machete, but he continued to swing at officers and struck one with the flat side of the blade, causing officers to respond with deadly force, according to the release.
