BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (AP) — The prosecutor's office says a police officer shot and killed a suspect armed with a knife after a woman was stabbed during a domestic dispute.
Police found a male armed with a knife and a woman suffering from apparent stab wounds when they arrived at a home on Greenbrook Drive in Bloomfield on Friday morning.
Authorities say the officers tried to unarm the suspect, but one officer opened fire when the suspect lunged toward them.
The female is in stable condition at a hospital.
No names have been released and the investigation is ongoing.
