Parole violator shot after threatening officer with knife
Investigators said the parole officer, who was dressed in plain clothes, was searching for a parole violator and believed he spotted him in the 1900 block of Huntington Drive in Duarte.
At one point, the suspect pulled out a knife and demanded the officer's cellphone, authorities said. The officer identified himself, and the suspect came at him with a knife, prompting the officer to fire. The officer shot the suspect several times in the upper torso.
The suspect was taken to a local hospital and later released. He has not been identified by authorities and has yet to be arrested, although he will be booked on suspicion of attempted robbery, assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and a violation of his parole, authorities said.
