Knife Wielding, Snake-Dancing Man in Officer-Involved Shooting in Torrance, California

A man was shot by police after he reportedly approached police with a knife while doing a “ritualistic” snake-dance.

Witnesses say that the man was dancing with a snake in the parking lot of a Planet Fitness while brandishing a knife. When police arrived, the man continued to dance while moving towards them with the knife. After they repeatedly asked him to stop advancing and he failed to comply, the officers opened fire. The suspect died at the scene.
