At about 6:45 this morning, Friday, November 2, police were called to a home in the 3500 block of 17th St., NE, for a possible assault. When officers arrived, one of our 5D officers was attacked by a suspect with a knife. The officer was assaulted, and in defending himself shot the suspect, who died at the scene.
The officer received several stab wounds. He has been released from the hospital and is doing well.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers that have arrived at 5D this morning.
