DEKALB, Ill. (AP) - DeKalb police say an officer shot and killed a Malta man who was observed attacking family members with a knife at their home.

In a statement, Police Chief Gene Lowery said DeKalb and Northern Illinois University officers on Tuesday were dispatched to a DeKalb residence. There, police encountered 28-year-old Cameron D. Lupton attacking Charlotte Lupton and her husband, Carl Lupton. According to Lowery, an officer he didn’t identify shot the attacker.

The Daily Chronicle in DeKalb reports (http://bit.ly/Ms3YPI ) Charlotte and Carl Lupton were taken to Kishwaukee Hospital with multiple stab wounds. Lowery did not say what prompted the attack.

Because it was an officer-involved shooting, Illinois State Police will conduct an investigation into the incident.
