An eyewitness who claimed to have seen two Lodi police officers shoot and kill a man Saturday morning said the man did not obey orders to put down his weapons, but also did not charge at officers before they opened fire.

Two officers, one a 22-year veteran and another a 15-year veteran, responded to a call of a disturbance on Elderica Way, west of Lower Sacramento Road, in Lodi at 9:06 a.m. Near the home, officers were confronted by Parminder Singh Shergill, 43, armed with a knife, according to Lt. Sierra Brucia of the Lodi Police Department.
