Snyder police would not release any more details Sunday evening, but confirmed the incident did happen and said more information would come Monday.
The Snyder Daily News reports that it happened in the 500 block of 27th St., when police responded to a call of a man holding a knife to a baby around 7 a.m. Saturday.
After a nearly two-hour negotiation, the man allegedly pulled out a knife and was shot by officers. He later died at a local hospital.
The mother and child were not hurt.
