GAINESVILLE, Florida (AP) - Police have shot a man suspected of stabbing a man on the University of Florida's campus.
Authorities say the suspect approached a university staff member and his wife outside of Leigh Hall Monday morning. After a brief conversation, the suspect stabbed the man and fled the area.
The Gainesville Sun reports a police officer saw the suspect in a Best Buy parking lot just after 10 a.m. The officer ordered the man to drop the hatchet he was carrying, but he ignored the order and came toward the officer. The officer fired and hit the man multiple times.
The suspect's condition was not immediately available.
The stabbing victim is at a hospital where he's being treated for his injuries.
Students are on spring break this week.
