Police said the suspect, described as a Hispanic man in his late 40s, was armed with a knife and ran at officers, who then shot him.
The suspect then ran to a local convenience store, where the officers used less-than-lethal methods and were able to take him into custody.
The suspect was treated and taken to a local hospital. The man’s condition is unknown at this time.
A “large knife” was found at the scene, police said.
