Police have to deal with very dangerous people sometime, and they have to defend themselves.
A Kalamazoo Sheriff was called to a Shell gas station after reports of a man with a knife.
The officer arrived and asked the man to put the knife down.
The man refused and continued to jab the knife in the direction of the officer.
Even after repeated warnings, the man continued to get closer and closer.
When the officer felt threatened… he pulled the trigger.
A single shot and the man with the knife died at the scene.
The officer is now on administrative leave as an investigation takes place.
