SALT LAKE CITY — A police officer shot and killed a man who authorities say stabbed two people, killing one of them, in downtown Salt Lake City late Wednesday night.
The injured person was in critical condition undergoing surgery at an area hospital late Wednesday.
When the Salt Lake police reached the scene, they were told the suspected stabber was in Pioneer Park attacking other people.
Salt Lake officers searched the park for the suspect, who was a black man. One of the officers encountered the suspect at the southeast corner of the park at 400 South and 300 West. The suspect, police say, threatened the officer, so she shot the man, killing him. Police did not reveal the number of shots fired by the officer.
In the park, police also found a dead body with multiple stab wounds
