HARBESON, Del. (AP) — Authorities in Delaware have identified a paraplegic man who was shot and killed by state troopers who were executing a search warrant at his home.

Delaware State Police said Wednesday that 50-year-old Robert Knox of Harbeson, Delaware, was lying in bed and reached for a handgun while troopers were in the home early Tuesday.
