According to Evansville Police, the Terry Daugherty unsheathed his two knives and refused to put them down. One officer fired two shots, one hit the suspect.
EPD says the Daugherty's actions make them feel it was an attempted 'suicide by cop' situation.
EPD says Officers David Smith and Aaron McCormick, both 8 year vets, have returned to work.
Officers provided their formal statements over the weekend.
EPD says the suspect's use of knives made it a deadly force situation, thus making the use of a firearm reasonable.
