A New York man killed after police say he came at them with swords in his hands was a former elite fencer. The state attorney general’s office says it has opened a probe into the killing of Alan Weber, 54, who died Tuesday night after being shot at his home on Long Island by a Suffolk County police officer. Suffolk County police say officers had gone to the home in response to a 911 call and Weber was wearing a fencing mask and had the swords when officers entered. In 1995, Weber was on the team that went to the Pan Am Games and took the silver medal in the team foil category.
