A sheriff’s deputy has shot and killed a man who stabbed his wife outside a Los Angeles courthouse.

Sheriff’s Officer Benny Carbajal says the man died of his wounds at a hospital after Monday’s shooting.

Attorney Thomas Feher was at the Chatsworth courthouse and saw the shooting. Feher says he saw a woman get out of a car and run toward the courthouse, chased by a man who got out of the car with a knife.

Authorities say the man was shot after he caught up with his wife on the courthouse steps and repeatedly stabbed her, refusing commands to drop the knife.
