Upon arrival, they discovered the deceased man, who had reportedly attempted to stab a man and a woman who lived at the property. In fear for their lives, the woman was able to fire at the man in an effort to stop his advances on them with the knives. Neither of the intended victims were charged. (; 5/20/24; Los Angeles; CA)
