A man was shot and killed by police after he allegedly tried to run them over with his car in Delaware County Tuesday.
The suspect was wanted for terroristic threats after he allegedly threatened to kill police and FBI agents in a video posted on YouTube. Police followed the man as he left a relative's home in Clifton Heights late Monday afternoon, according to investigators.
