Yellow tape covers the door to an area where a man was shot in a St. Paul apartment building on Saturday. The area is next to a community room where other residents were having a party.

The man shot and killed by a St. Paul police officer Saturday night inside an apartment complex had been behaving erratically while fellow residents in the building held a gathering, residents and acquaintances said Sunday.

An officer fatally shot the man after he "advanced" toward them, a spokesman for the St. Paul Police Department said a few hours after the shooting. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating what happened, and a spokeswoman said Sunday that additional details would not be released until Monday.

The incident occurred about 5 p.m. Saturday after police said the man was asked to leave a group event in an apartment complex community room. Calls came in to police shortly after about an older man with a knife who was seen in different parts of the complex on the 100 block of Western Avenue S.
