CINCINNATI (AP) - Authorities say a police officer shot a man during a confrontation along Interstate 75 about 20 miles north of Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1UA680r ) that a Glendale police officer pulled over on I-75 Tuesday afternoon to help a man who was walking along the southbound lanes. A Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office major says the officer searched the man’s bag before allowing him to get inside his cruiser and found a large knife, triggering an altercation that resulted in the officer shooting the man in the abdomen.

Neither the man nor the officer has been identified. The man is hospitalized.

The southbound lanes of I-75 were closed for more than three hours.

Hamilton County sheriff’s Major Mike Horton says the altercation was recorded by the Glendale officer’s body camera.
