A Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina police officer killed a man that, according to official records, stabbed his ex-wife’s daughter multiple times Saturday night.

According to authorities, a man broke into his ex-wife’s home during an argument. Investigators indicated that the woman was able to leave the house, but her daughter was still inside, and that is when the subject threatened the 13-year-old teenager while the officers tried to alleviate the situation shortly before 7:00 p.m.

Moments later the man began to stab the minor, which generated the reaction of one of the agents who shot him to death, reported WSOC-TV.

The assailant, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead in the neighborhood where the events occurred and authorities were able to retrieve the suspect’s knife, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.

Meanwhile, the teenager had to be rushed to a local hospital with serious injuries, police said.

We never want a case like this to end where someone is injured, let alone killed, but I think our officers did what they had to do.Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Johnny Jennings stated. “They were heroic in their actions; however, it did not turn out as we would like ”.

The officer who shot the suspect will be placed on paid administrative leave, which is a routine procedure when an officer fires a firearm. So far the officer has not been identified.

In addition, the Office of Internal Affairs also conducts a separate investigation that is ongoing, and consists of a procedure with any shooting in which a police officer is involved.
