(Lancaster) -- Authorities in Lancaster County have identified a homeless man shot by police after officials said he threatened officers with a 9-inch knife.
Police identified the man as 35-year-old Gregory Stephen Bayne.
Police said an officer responded to a report of a man urinating in public shortly after 7 a.m. Monday in Lancaster.
Chief Keith Sadler says the man pulled a knife as the officer checked his identification and a chase ensued.
Sadler says Bayne was given chances to drop his weapon, but instead lunged at an officer with the knife and was shot.
Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman says he's reviewed surveillance video of the incident and preliminarily determined the shooting was "entirely justified."
