RPD: Shasta Deputy Shoots Man Armed with a Knife

REDDING, Calif. (AP) — A Shasta County sheriff's deputy has shot and wounded a man with mental health issues after he tried to stab the officer with a knife. The Record Searchlight reports the man was taken to a local hospital with two non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The incident unfolded around 7 p.m. Saturday when two deputies received a report of a family disturbance. When deputies arrived, they encountered an uncooperative man armed with a knife. Police say a deputy shot the man with a stun gun, but it was ineffective. Police say the man lunged at a deputy in an attempt to stab him and the deputy shot him, police said. The officer-involved shooting is being investigated by the Redding Police Department.
