MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Mesa police say a man is hospitalized after being shot and wounded by two officers when he advanced on them while holding a knife.

Detective Nikolas Rasheta says the shooting occurred early Thursday morning at home where a son of the man had called police to report domestic violence involving his parents.

According to Rasheta, the man refused police commands to drop the knife, wasn’t stopped by the firing of beanbags and continued to advance aggressively toward the officers.

The wounded man is hospitalized in stable condition. No officers were injured.

No identities were released.

The incident occurred at a home near Ellsworth and Brown roads.
