More details have been released regarding a State College officer-involved shooting that left one man dead. According to a police search warrant WE obtained , on Tuesday, a father who lives out of town was worried about his son, 29-year-old Osaze Osagie, who he told police had been acting erratically for a couple of weeks and could possibly be off his medication. The father showed police text messages that showed Osagie made threats to himself and others, the warrant says. Wednesday afternoon, officers with the State College Police Department responded to Osagie's home at Marvin Gardens on Old Boalsburg Road after he was seen nearby, according to the warrant. Police say when they arrived to the apartment, Osagie confronted officers with a knife and ignored commands to drop it. The warrant says Osagie came after the officers and that's when police shot and killed him. State police are continuing to investigate.
