LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man was shot and killed by a Jefferson County Sheriff's deputy outside a Louisville business Tuesday morning after the suspect came at deputies with a knife, according to law enforcement officials on the scene.
A spokesman for the sheriff's department said a man to whom deputies were trying to serve a warrant claimed he wasn't the person they were looking for. He told the deputies he was going inside the house to get his identification, but instead, he left the house in a truck.
The deputies followed the man to nearby HD Supply at 4602 Roofing Road. Authorities said the man got out of his truck and came at the deputies with a knife. One or more of the deputies fired at the man, and he was shot and killed.
Investigators don't know what if any connection the man has to HD Supply.
The shooting happened around 9:45 a.m. Tuesday.
The Louisville Metro Police Department's Public Integrity Unit will investigate the incident.
