Nev. Deputy Shoots Knife-Wielding Man
By Peter Thompson, Nevada Appeal
A Carson City Sheriff's deputy shot a man who allegedly attacked him with a knife early Saturday morning, authorities said.
Responding to a call from a family member reporting the man as suicidal, the officer was allegedly attacked in front of the man's house on Eighth Street at 7:41 a.m., immediately as the officer arrived on scene, according to police reports.
"The deputy didn't even get a chance to get away from his (car) door before the guy came after him," Sheriff Kenny Furlong said.
