MIAMI (AP) - Miami-Dade police fatally shot a knife-wielding man during a confrontation at an apartment complex after he allegedly stabbed his wife and son.

Police say officers responded to a report of a stabbing of a 13-year-old boy and his 35-year-old mother in southwest Miami-Dade County early Thursday. The officers found the suspect, 42-year-old Ernesto Medina Lopez, inside the family’s apartment and shot him during an altercation.

It’s not known what caused the confrontation with the boy and his mother, or with police. The names of the victims and the identity or race of the officer who shot the suspect were not released. The suspect was described as black Hispanic.
