UPDATE: Man shot by Troy police dies; woman found stabbed


TROY, Ohio (AP) — Police in southwest Ohio say an armed man died after being shot by officers at an apartment complex where a woman was found with stab wounds.

Police shot and killed Al R. Pickett, 52, of Troy, according to various published reports. 

The adult female, who was stabbed prior to the officers' arrival, was transported to an area hospital and was treated and released. WHIO-TV said she had stab wounds in her back and suffered a leg injury.

The shooting happened late Tuesday as officers responded to reports of a domestic disturbance in Troy, about 15 miles north of Dayton.

Police Chief Charles Phelps says the responding officers encountered a man with a gun, and police fired at him. It's not clear whether the man used his weapon.

Neighbors reported hearing five gunshots, but no other gunshot injuries were reported.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is expected to investigate the shooting.
