Aurora, CO (KDVR/CNN) - Police in Aurora, Colorado shot and killed a man Tuesday after first responders say he threatened them inside this home.

Paramedics were the first to arrive on the scene after family members called for help. They say the man was naked and armed with a large knife.

"With his agitation he retreated to a bedroom and came out with what paramedics are describing as a machete," said Sgt. Cassidee Carlson.

Officials say the man hit one of the officers with the knife and was shot by another officer at the scene.

The 55-year-old man was taken to the hospital where he died.
