Coroner's office IDs man killed by Meridian Police
MERIDIAN, Idaho (KBOI) - One man is dead after four officers were involved in a shooting at the Wilson Lane Apartments Monday night.

Just before midnight officers were called out to the complex for a suspicious looking person. Investigators say the incident happened just outside the man's apartment.

Meridian Police said Tuesday a short time after officers arrived in the parking lot of the apartment complex they were confronted by a man holding an edged weapon.

Officers yelled to the man to drop the weapon but he did not, Meridian PD says, and instead moved toward the officers in a manner that "caused the officers to fear for their safety."

All four officers fired their weapons. On Tuesday, the Ada County Coroner's office identified the suspect has 38-year-old Eric O. Dilworth of Meridian. He died from multiple gunshot wounds.
