Police: Suspect hit someone with vehicle before officer-involved shooting

STOCKTON, Ca. (KXTV) -- One person was killed in an officer-involved shooting Tuesday afternoon.

The shooting happened in the 8700 block of Deer Creek Circle around 3:45 p.m. 

According to police, the suspect tried to run over several people with a vehicle, striking one person. That victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

When officers arrived, the suspect got out of the vehicle, armed with a knife. 

After officers told the suspect to drop the weapon, the suspect charged at the officers. They used a bean bag round, but it did not stop the knife-welding suspect.
