Trollman’s 92-year-old mother called for police because her son started acting erratic when making breakfast. This developed into his stabbing a home health care worker, who escaped with only superficial cuts. Trollman greeted the police with a kitchen knife. When pelted with pepper balls, he ran back inside and retrieved a bigger knife, refused to cooperate, threw one of the weapons, and finally was shot to death.
