PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man died after being shot by police during a domestic disturbance call on Thursday night.

Around 10:37 p.m., the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was called out to the West Slope Apartments located on Southwest Canyon Lane as multiple people reportedly heard yells coming from one apartment. Deputies went to arrest a man from the apartment in question, but the man pulled out a knife.

After struggling with the man, deputies fired off shots.

Life-saving efforts were made but were unsuccessful and the man died at the scene. WCSO said a Taser was used on the man at the start of the struggle but it wasn’t effective. The deputies said the man was still holding the large kitchen knife as he moved toward deputies so he was shot.
