The soldiers say a man broke into a house and stabbed a victim several times before fleeing the scene.

Police said they found Carson Dobson, 24, wielding a knife and sword, a short distance away. The soldiers ordered him to drop the weapons and he reportedly repeated that he had ignored the commands.

He was shot after continuing to approach the officers, threatening them, after receiving a Taser.

Dobson died at the scene.

The stabbed victim was taken to a local hospital and is expected to recover.

The New York State Attorney’s Office is investigating the incident.
