FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man armed with a knife has been shot and wounded by a Fargo police officer.

Officers responded to a domestic disturbance at an apartment about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. Police Chief David Todd says a man inside the residence came at police with the knife, and an officer shot him.

The 28-year-old man went back inside the apartment, but a SWAT team persuaded him to surrender.

Todd says the woman who lived in the apartment had a protection order against the man. She wasn’t harmed.

The man was taken into custody and taken to a hospital. His condition isn’t known.

The officer is identified as Jacob Rued, who has been with the Fargo Police Department for two years. Rued is on standard paid administrative leave while the state crime bureau investigates.
