Police shot a man who they suspect stabbed a woman in a gated Porter Ranch community Wednesday night, authorities said.
Both the man who was shot and the woman who was stabbed were taken to a hospital and are in stable condition, said LAPD Officer Christopher No, a spokesman.
Los Angeles police officers responded to a domestic incident call on the 20000 block of Sardinia Way at about 10:40 p.m. Wednesday, and found a woman who had been stabbed, No said.
When police encountered the stabbing suspect, police tried to use nonlethal methods including a Taser and bean bag pellets to try and subdue him, but he “continued to approach with some kind of sharp object,” he said. That’s when police shot him, No said.
He would not say how many times the man was shot or where, nor would he say how many officers shot the suspect.
