PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities say a man who was fatally shot by police in Port Orchard, Washington, was armed with a knife.
The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said Friday that officers were attempting to arrest 36-year-old Thomas D. Rogers on felony arrest warrants when he was shot by police behind a strip mall Thursday night.
Rogers was being sought by authorities in Tulsa County, Oklahoma, on an outstanding warrant for child molestation. He was also wanted for a probation violation in Kitsap County.
Two officers were injured in the encounter. One suffered cuts, while the other injured an ankle.
Authorities say officers used a Taser but it didn't have an effect on Rogers. Authorities believe two officers fired their guns.
The sheriff's office is investigating.
Port Orchard is west of Seattle.
