Henderson police said they were investigating an officer-involved shooting Sept. 13, 2018.

When officers arrived, they could hear loud screaming coming from inside the residence, Henderson police said. Officers forced their way inside and found a man wielding a box cutter.

According to police, there was a woman inside the residence in "obvious distress" and she was the one who had called 911. Officers gave verbal commands for the man to drop the box cutter, but the suspect exited a closet and charged at officers with the box cutter.

Officers shot the man and the woman was taken to Sunrise Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

One officer was shot in the foot and was taken to an area hospital.
