COLUMBUS, Ohio - Police have shot and killed a suspect after he attacked multiple people at a restaurant in northeast Columbus with a machete.
The incident happened at the Nazareth Restaurant & Deli on North Hamilton Road just after 6:00 p.m. on Thursday.
Police said the man walked into the restaurant, had a conversation with an employee and then left. He returned about a half hour later. That's when police said he approached a man and a woman who were sitting just inside the door at a booth and started the attack.
After the attacks, the suspect fled in his car southwest toward the Easton area. Officers attempted a PIT maneuver during the escape, but were unsuccessful. A short time later, a successful attempt was made, and the suspect slammed into a curb near Montclair Drive.
As officers converged on the suspect, he exited the vehicle with a knife in one hand and a machete in the other, according to police. After unsuccessfully firing a taser at the man, he lunged across the hood at the officers and was shot dead.
No officers were hurt during the shooting.

First , did anyone take notice of the name ? Nazareth Restaurant & Deli .The restaurant specializes in Mid Eastern cuisine . Is it possible to tell if that had something to do with it ? And I wonder what the conversation before hand was about...Will we ever know ?

The dude obviously got what was coming to him!
Have to wonder through how do you unsuccessfully fire a taser at someone short of missing the target? Could they not have tried a different taser?
Might have been an idea to take the Man alive so as to determine his reasoning or connection regarding Samalialiun terrorists. Just a thought.
