JSO said officers told the man to drop the knife but he refused. They used a Taser to try to disarm him.
They kept asking him to drop the knife but he refused. That's when JSO says he raised the knife again.
Officer B.L. Kelly fired his gun once, killing the suspect, according to JSO.
This is Kelly's first officer-involved shooting. The officers were wearing body cameras, according to JSO.
Officers have not yet released the man's identity pending notification of family.
