MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a man armed with a knife was fatally shot by police in Washington state Tuesday night.

The three Marysville police officers are now on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Six officers initially responded after the man’s wife called 911, reporting that her husband had a knife and was acting suicidal, erratic and aggressive.

Authorities say the three officers opened fire after the man tried to stab his wife upon seeing police arrive to their home.

The man in his late 30s was pronounced dead at the scene but hasn’t yet been identified publicly.

The knife was recovered.

No one else was hurt.
