Investigators say they were called out when the suspect intentionally tried to run over several people with a vehicle. One person was hit, and they were hospitalized with serious injuries. The suspect continued driving through the neighborhood and hit several other parked vehicles.

The suspect then exited his vehicle armed with a knife.

When police arrived, the suspect did not comply with orders to drop the weapon and charged at officers with the knife.

In an attempt to stop the suspect, officers shot the suspect with bean bag rounds -- but they had no effect.

The suspect continued toward officers and, fearing for their safety, two officers fired their duty weapons, hitting the suspect.

Officers attempted life-saving measures, but the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene by medics.

No officers were injured in the shooting.

Police are continuing to investigate the shooting.
