KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - A 64-year-old Kenosha man is expected to survive after he was shot by police.

Police shot and wounded the knife-wielding man Wednesday after authorities say he advanced on the officers and refused orders to drop the knives.

Police were called to a home where a woman said her husband had gone into the garage to kill himself. Police arrived to find the man sitting in a running car in the garage and armed with two knives. When the man refused to drop the knives, two officers fired stun guns at the man, to no effect.

An 18-year police veteran shot the man in the stomach when he got out of the car and began advancing on the officers.

The Kenosha News (https://bit.ly/1KtYH6h ) reports the Wisconsin Department of Justice will investigate.
