HAMILTON, OH - Police say an officer in Hamilton, Ohio killed a man who confronted him with a knife.

The officer came face-to-face with him while responding to an emergency call over the weekend.

Officials say the man confronted the officer with a large knife in a parking lot of an apartment complex.

The officer then opened fire and killed him.

A police chief says neither man's identity will be released right away.

"The coroner's office will release his identity and information," says Hamilton Police Chief Craig Bucheit. "I don't expect that to occur before Monday and at that time we will release the officer's information as well."

The police chief also says multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating the shooting.
