Deadly force was justified in the police shooting in Richfield of a man threatening officers with a knife, the Hennepin County Attorney's Office announced Monday.

Brian Quinones-Rosario, 30, of Richfield, was fatally shot on Sept. 7 near E. 77th Street and Chicago Avenue after leading Edina police on a vehicle chase. Several officers from Edina and Richfield opened fire moments after Quinones exited the vehicle with a knife raised.
