Perryton man brought down by officers

Perryton, TX - A Perryton man is in critical condition after officers had to bring him down when he became a threat.

Early Saturday morning officers from the Perryton Police Department received a 911 call about a domestic dispute on Baylor Street.

When officers arrived they say a man and woman were arguing inside the residence.

Upon entry, the man reportedly charged at the officers with a knife.

Officers say he was ordered to drop the weapon but ignored demands so they shot him.

The suspect was transferred to an Amarillo hospital where he remains.

Three Texas Rangers are conducting an investigation.
