SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after they say Sidney police fatally shot a 44-year-old man who was armed with a knife.

Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub says two police officers had responded to a domestic dispute report at a residence Sunday and spotted a woman running away from the home. The Scottsbluff Star Herald (https://bit.ly/1HKEVQE ) reports police went inside and confronted her husband, Dana Hlavinka, who was holding the knife, and shot him.

The woman has been hospitalized with stab wounds. Her condition wasn’t immediately available.

The names of the officers involved haven’t been released.

Schaub says he’ll ask the local district judge to appoint a special acting attorney to review the incident and convene a grand jury.

The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating the case.
