STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina authorities say two sheriff's deputies shot and killed a man who came at them with a knife after they attempted to serve him an eviction notice.
Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell told news media outlets that two deputies were serving the notice on Tuesday in Statesville. Campbell said when they knocked on the door, they saw the man inside brandishing a large knife.
The sheriff said the man lunged at the deputies with the knife, and both deputies fired their weapons.
Authorities have not released the name of either the man or the deputies.
