A Dallas police officer shot a man who police say was chasing another man with a knife on Saturday night.

The uniformed officer stopped at 7-Eleven, at 111 N. Carroll Ave., just before 11:30 p.m. to get gas.

While standing at the pump, the officer saw a knife-wielding man chasing another man. The officer intervened and shot the man, who was then taken to a local hospital, police said.

No other injuries were reported. The suspect, who has not been identified, is expected to be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon when he’s released from the hospital.

The officer has been at the Dallas Police Department for 4 years.
