Family of man killed in officer-involved shooting identifies him as Shane Lyons


    DEVELOPING: Angel San Juan reports the family of a man killed Friday in an officer-involved shooting identifies him as Shayne Lyons, a father of five and PAISD teacher.

    Witnesses say he came toward the officer with a machete.

    DA. Bob Wortham says tests show a pack of cigarettes in Lyons' pocket tested positive for PCP.

    Some relatives and friends question the finding and whether the officer needed to use deadly force.

    The officer is on administrative leave with pay, standard procedure in such a case.

    Wortham says the case will go to a grand jury for review, also standard procedure in such case.

    Angel San Juan has a live report on a PAPD news conference at 5, 5:30 and 6.
