GARLAND (KRLD) - Garland police say they are investigating a shooting after one of their officer's killed a man Tuesday afternoon.

Police say an officer shot and killed a man after he was swinging a machete at moving cars near the Bass Pro Drive exit on I-30.

Garland police say their officers attempted to talk with the man before he was killed.
