A man fatally stabbed a police officer at a police box in a northeastern Japan city early Wednesday before being shot dead by another officer.

The man, identified by the police as Yuta Aizawa, a 21-year-old university student in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, visited the Higashi-Sendai police box in the city, around 4 a.m., telling 33-year-old senior officer Hiroaki Seino he had come to hand over lost cash.

A few minutes later, a 47-year-old police sergeant who was in a separate room heard shouting and found Seino and the attacker drenched in blood.

Both Seino and the man were later pronounced dead at a hospital.
