A man in Stockton was shot and killed after apparently confronting officers with a bayonet.
The incident began Saturday night when Stockton Police officers responded to a domestic violence call to a house on the 1500 block of Carpenter Road.
That's when officers heard a woman screaming.
"So our officers had to go inside the house, once we got inside the suspect saw us and drug the female into a back room and we had to force entry," Stockton Police Officer Joe Silva said.
Silva says officers then detained 45-year-old parolee Donald Haynes. However, he fought with officers and managed to escape.
On Sunday morning, officers following up the incident saw Haynes in a vehicle, and that's when Silva says he came out with a 19.5-inch long bayonet.
"Our officers are saying, "Drop the bayonet, drop the bayonet,' and the suspect did not. He continued to walk toward our officer, so our officer had to fire his weapon," Silva said.
Haynes was shot once and died of his injury at a local hospital. No officers were injured in the incident.
