The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says the shooting happened Tuesday in Virginia. Local police and St. Louis County sheriff's deputies responded to a report of suspicious activity and found someone in the street. The BCA hasn't said what prompted an officer to shoot, but said a knife was recovered at the scene.
The person was taken to Essentia Health-Virginia Hospital and later pronounced dead. An autopsy will be conducted by the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office. The officer involved is on standard administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
