JACKSON, Wis. (AP) - Family members say the man fatally shot by police in Washington County was armed with a knife and threatening their mother, his estranged girlfriend.

Police were called to a condo in Jackson Friday evening where the 57-year-old man was holding the woman. Neighbors say police converged on scene with guns drawn and entered the condo where they shot and killed the man.

Michelle Eskildsen tells WITI-TV (http://bit.ly/29dU7YQ ) her mother was taken to a hospital, but is doing well. Eskildsen says she’s not sure what made the man snap and attack her mother. Eskildsen says the family is grateful police answered a call for help quickly.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice is investigating the shooting.
