WELLINGTON, Fla. – Authorities say a man holding two large knives was fatally shot after he charged two South Florida deputies.
Local news outlets report the shooting occurred Wednesday morning.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that the man's wife and 15-year-old daughter had been staying at a safe house after a sexual assault investigation. Escorted by two deputies, the wife had returned to the home to pick up some belongings.
Deputies say the man appeared in a hallway holding the knives. The deputies repeatedly ordered the man to drop the knives, but he refused. One deputy tried unsuccessfully to subdue the man with a stun gun. The other deputy then shot the man twice.
The man was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Authorities didn't immediately release the names or races of the deputies and suspect.
