Man Shot, Killed After Charging at Deputies with Knife

UPDATE: 11:00 P.M. – During a press conference moments ago, officials confirmed that the suspect passed away as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

According to officials, around 8:00 p.m. deputies were dispatched to 38339 Higginson Road after receiving a 911 call from the suspect’s mother who claimed that her son and girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute. The suspect’s mother further advised that her son was extremely violent and that he would stab four or five deputies before they tased him. Upon arrival, the suspect, who has yet to be identified, fled into a trailer behind the home. Deputies pursued the suspect and began communicating with the man through a window in the trailer. During the negotiations the suspect made motions as if he were cutting his throat and wrist. At some point deputies were communicating with the suspect at the front door of the trailer when he suddenly charged at them with a knife. As a result, one of the deputies shot the suspect several times. Officials say the suspect died while being transported to a local trauma center.

There are no further details at this time.

  • So before you go and make stupid comments about the police officers take consideration what they’ll be going through

  • If you have never been a cop you have no idea what goes through their mind in a split-second decision I feel bad for the offices having to live through this nightmare for sleepless nights replaying the scenario in mind trust me I know cuz I have been there and it sucks no police officer wants to shoot someone

  • Jerry, if someone comes at you with a knife and you have been told he would do so, the officers were prepared. It was either the cops life or the criminals life. Shoot to stop the threat even if it means lethal force. If you don’t want to die don’t threaten innocent people. What did you want the cop to do give the criminal a hug?

  • Obama is out and the days of hug a thug and coddling societies misfits, drug addicts, drug dealers and just those who refuse to work so they can accept free healthcare and food, housing, phones ect. From our government. Less lethal would have been a mistake, u miss or it doesn’t achieve the results needed and now he is stabbing police officers. Bring deadly force, expect deadly force. Good job PCSO!

  • Sounds like 1 less p.o.s in Pasco! Keep up the Good work Sheriff Nocco! NEXT : )

  • Must the result be “lethal” so much of the time. These deputies were warned beforehand and should have been prepared to handle this without resorting to lethal force. I wager his Mother regrets calling them.

    • His mother is heartbroken I’m sure. Could we ALL have a heart for this woman who did what she thought was the right thing?? Perhaps he was no better to his mom than he was to his girlfriend. Still doesn’t change her feelings of despair. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO THIS MOM WHO DID WHAT SHE THOUGHT BEST FOR ALL INVOLVED.

    • Ok, Jerry, give us a blow-by-blow description of what YOU would have done if called to the scene. Come on, now, don’t be shy, we are anxiously awaiting to be enlightened!

  • Suicidal or not, charge at officers with a knife and expect anything other than being shot is silly. Nice work officer! You made Pasco a safer place.

    Friday, 14 July 2017, 5:05 am
  • AGAIN!!!
    The cops kill someone Threatening suicide!
    “He’s gonna kill himself ! Quick! Shoot him!!” Maybe he had information on our crooked sheriff! What a DIRTBAG!! THIEF!!! TRUE SCUM!! Should be in jail!!
    Complete B.S!!!

  • Well, i guess since he was suicidal he got the cop’s to do it for him. It’s a shame though that they weren’t able to resolve the situation without using lethal force, especially since they knew he was suicidal…

    • When will people learn that if you threaten LEO with violence and potential harm, game over.
