An officer-involved shooting in Enoch, Utah ended with one man shot in the knee.

Enoch Police said they were called out to a domestic disturbance at a residence on North Enoch Road at approximately 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

A person inside the house told officers a 19-year-old man with two knives was fighting with his mother.

Police said the man was aggressive and non-compliant after they tried to subdue him with less-lethal force.

Police said they shot the suspect one time in the knee after he advanced toward them while in possession of a deadly weapon.

The suspect is undergoing medical treatment and sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Police said no one else was injured.
