VALLEJO (AP) — Northern California police shot and killed a 21-year-old man after a fight broke out outside a house party.

KNTV-TV reports that officers responded early Monday to find two people entangled in a brawl outside a Vallejo home.

Police say the 21-year-old was wielding a knife and standing over a 16-year-old on the ground. One of the responding officers determined that the 21-year-old suspect was an imminent threat to the victim and decided to fire his weapon.

The knife-wielding suspect was struck multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene. His identification has not yet been released.

Authorities in Solano County are investigating the shooting.
