WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — A D.C. Police officer shot and killed a suspect after being stabbed in the head and neck in Northeast Friday morning, police say.
Police responded to a domestic violence report at a home on 17th Street, between Newton and Monroe streets for a suspect attacking his grandfather.
“The suspect, who had been outside, came up from behind the officers and attacked the officers,” says D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. “One of the officers has several stab wounds to his head, neck and hands.”
The officer, who is said to be doing OK, then shot and killed the suspect. He is a 10-year veteran of the force.
The officer and the suspect were not immediately identified.
