LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Police say a Jefferson County sheriff's deputy has fatally shot a man while trying to serve a warrant.

Police told Louisville media that deputies were trying to serve the warrant to a man at a residence on Tuesday morning, but he fled to the parking lot of an HD Supply store. Police say the suspect came at deputies with a knife when he was shot.

The Louisville Metro Police Department is investigating. They did not immediately release the name of the suspect or of the deputy.
