A Cape Girardeau police officer shot a man inside a house about 10 o’clock Wednesday night in the 600 block of La Petite Court. Public Information Officer Adam Glueck says the patrolman, who has been with the department for 2 and a half years, was uninjured. Officers were investigating suspicious activity when the man came toward the officer in a threatening manner with a knife. The officer fired at the man and hit him several times. The officer has been placed on administrative leave, as is protocol. Glueck tells KZIM KSIM the officer involved was not equipped with a body camera. The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the incident. An autopsy will be conducted. Names are not being released at this time.
