JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –
An officer shot and killed a man who had just cut him with a knife in a home in a rural area of Northwest Jacksonville early Friday afternoon, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Another person stabbed in that home is in critical condition.
Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt said three officers responded to a call about a stabbing on Doe Lane, north of Garden Street, when the shooting occurred about 1:30 p.m.
“(The suspect) jumped off the couch and stabbed the first officer,” Senterfitt said. He said that officer, Steven Brown, who sustained a major cut on his arm, was able to fire at the suspect with his rifle and then handgun.
