[UPDATED with I.D.:] Cop Fatally Shoots Man Wielding a Knife and Bible in Anaheim Police Parking Lot: Report

UPDATE, JAN. 25, 8:50 A.M.: Apologies for catching up on some updates I missed due to being out sick the weekend through Monday and having no time to get to them until now, but the man shot and killed by a cop in the parking lot of the Anaheim Police east station last week has been identified as Roscoe Cambridge.

The Anaheim 29-year-old was carrying a large kitchen knife and bible when he approached a police sergeant working on the computer in his service vehicle, according to authorities.

If a motive for the confrontation is known, it has not been divulged.
