CHULA VISTA, Calif. — A man who was killed Sunday after being shot by a police officer in Chula Vista has been identified by authorities.
The San Diego Police Department said Bradley Munroe, a 32-year-old Chula Vista resident, ignored commands from police to stop approaching an officer while holding a knife around 8:20 p.m. in the 1100 block of Broadway.
