WAYCROSS, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation will examine a fatal shooting involving Waycross police. Mayor Clarence Billups said two police officers were involved in the shooting Friday evening. Billups said the two officers went to a home to investigate a report of a person threatening suicide. Billups told The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/GFlDAy) that those police officers were confronted by a man armed with a knife. He refused commands to put down the weapon. The man then lunged at police, who opened fire. GBI officials will investigate the fatal shooting, which is standard procedure. ___ Information from: The (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union, http://www.jacksonville.com
