Summary the suspect, 40-year-old Julio Colon, was wielding a knife and had stabbed the other male, whose identity has not been released. Officers had to force their way through the front door of the home and then through the apartment door. Officers asked Colon to put the knife down, but they say he would not comply. It was when Colon again lunged at the injured victim with a knife that police say the officer, Sgt. Darryl Mallard, first shot the suspect once in the chest. Police say Colon then went after the Sgt. Mallard with the knife, and was shot twice more. All three shots were to the chest.
