Salem police: Officer shot man brandishing knife
Salem police say an officer has shot a man coming at him with a knife.
The police said the officer wasn't hurt, and the man was taken to the hospital. No information was immediately available on his condition.
The shooting followed a report of a domestic dispute about 7 a.m. Wednesday.
The police said in a statement that 47-year-old Michael Connelly confronted Officer David Baker with a knife and wouldn't obey orders to drop it.
The State Police and the district attorney's office will be in charge of the investigation.
