MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say a Florida police officer fatally shot a man who had stabbed the mother of his child.
The Miami Herald reports that the shooting occurred Tuesday morning in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood.
Officials say police responded to a domestic violence call at an apartment and found a woman bleeding from the neck.
Miami Police Chief Jorge Colina says the officer fired after being confronted with a weapon. He didn’t give details about the weapon. Colina says the woman is in critical condition but is expected to survive.
Authorities weren’t immediately naming the officer, the dead man or their races.
