The Tulare County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an officer involved shooting in Visalia. 

Police were called to the area of North Turner Street and Ferguson Avenue just before 11:30 p.m. last night.

Officers say a man had stabbed another person during a family disturbance.

They say the man was armed with a knife.

Officers say they used bean bags to get him to cooperate but that didn’t work, so police shot him.

Both the victim and the suspect were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
