HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Police are looking into an officer-involved shooting that left one man dead in Huntsville.

Multiple news outlets report police responded to a stabbing call at an apartment building Monday night. Officers say when they got to the scene, the male suspect charged officers with a knife. The officers asked him to stop but when he didn’t, they fired shots. The suspect was taken to the hospital with critical injuries, and later pronounced dead at Huntsville Hospital. Police say the officers were not hurt.

Authorities say the man had attacked his brother and a neighbor before police were called. The neighbor is being treated for life-threatening injuries. It is unclear the extent of the brother’s injuries.
