They forced their way in, encountered a male suspect and began a struggle to take him into custody. During that altercation, police say the man stabbed one officer and another officer fatally shot him. The injured officer and a female victim who sustained a gunshot wound were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
