Around 9pm Thursday night police were called by University of Bridgeport about a man with knife.  When police arrived the man engaged police on a foot pursuit down Atlantic Street.  The man ran into an apartment complex at 557 Street where a stand off occurred. The man attacked police with the knife and police tased him 3 three times, the man still did not drop the knife and lunged at police when officers shot him according to our sources.  The suspect is alive and at the hospital, the extent of his injuries are not known at this time.  One police officer was taken to the hospital as well.  I saw him walk to the ambulance with an oxygen mask.  Again, injuries are not known at this time but he appeared alert with no life threatening injuries.  An investigation is underway.  As with all breaking news facts will change so if we get any updates we will post them on
