    Family of Kenner man shot by police said he was holding butter knives

    A 25-year-old man suffering from mental health issues was holding butter knives and posed no threat to officers when he was fatally shot by Kenner police Monday (Jan. 23), family members and witnesses said Tuesday.

    They disputed the police's account that Armond Jairon Brown was a threat and that he was shot shortly after 4 p.m. only as he approached a police officer armed with two knives at the end of an hours-long standoff. Police said Brown was shot three times in the front yard of the family's home in the 300 block of Webster Street. He was taken to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

    After 4 hour Standoff, LEOs Tried Less-Lethal Methods

    Police Chief "Glaser said police first shot Armand Brown using rubber-like ammunition and then used a Taser stun gun on him as he moved toward officers outside Brown's home in the 300 block of Webster Street. When Brown got near an officer who was using those non-lethal methods, another officer who was providing cover fatally shot Brown with a gun, Glaser said."
