A man who was holding a knife was wounded and in critical condition after he was shot by Huntington Beach police Monday.
Officers responded at around 10:21 p.m. to a residence on the 21800 block of Newland Street, said Huntington Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jenn Marlatt.
Police found a woman, unresponsive, on the ground in front of the house and a man with a knife standing in front of her, Marlatt said.
The man was not cooperating with police and at that point, several shots were fired by an officer, Marlatt said.
The 26-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The woman was not injured.
The knife was recovered at the scene.
