MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Hennepin County medical examiner's office says the man who was shot and killed by a Bloomington police officer died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The medical examiner identifies the man as 50-year-old Billie Lobahanow.

Lobahanow allegedly wielded a knife in each hand as he confronted the officer in the hallway of a Bloomington apartment building Thursday. Witnesses say Lobahanow did not comply with repeated orders to stop and drop the knives.

Police have not yet identified the officer.

According to the Star Tribune, police Cmdr. Mark Stehlik says police were responding to a report of a domestic assault involving Lobahanow and his sister.

A caretaker who tried to intervene in the assault was stabbed by Lobahanow. The caretaker was taken to a hospital but apparently was not critically hurt.
