    A busy Fremont neighborhood was shut down Monday morning as police investigated a deadly officer involved shooting, where two officers fatally shot a 37-year-old San Jose man who police say was naked and chasing his wife with a knife. Bob Redell reports.

    His identity was not immediately released.

    The officers were called out to the store on a burglary call.

    Once there, the officers spotted a man believed to be a burglar trying to run away.

    They shot him during a foot chase when they say he picked up a “wooden object” and attacked them, said LAPD spokesman Cleon Joseph.
