BALTIMORE — Baltimore’s top police official says officers fatally shot a man who was holding a woman at knifepoint and threatening to stab her.
TV station WBAL reports officers were called to a residence around 10:40 Sunday morning for a report of a family disturbance.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison says there’s body camera footage of the incident.
Harrison says the officers tried to use de-escalation techniques but shot the man after he grabbed the victim by her hair and motioned as if he was going to stab her with a large knife in his hands.
The woman was not hurt.
