PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say a knife-wielding man is dead after being shot by two officers during a confrontation after the man allegedly cut another person and threatened others.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard says the injuries of the person who was cut apparently aren’t life-threatening and that no officers were injured in the Wednesday evening incident at a gas station.

Howard says officers went to the gas station after receiving calls reporting a man with a knife acting erratically.

No identities were released.

The incident occurred near North 32nd Street and East Thomas Road.
