Deputies shoot, kill man who stabbed girlfriend to death

Posted: Updated:

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says deputies shot and killed a 29-year-old man who attacked with a knife after stabbing his 26-year-old girlfriend to death.
    
Col. John Fortunato identified them Sunday as Noah Scott and Jessica Broussard, both Metairie's Bucktown neighborhood.
    
Scott died Saturday at the home where he lived with his parents.
    
Fortunato says a neighbor called late Saturday, saying a woman had been stabbed in his yard. The neighbor said the woman ran from her boyfriend's home, screaming, "He's trying to stab me!" - and within seconds, the man caught up and stabbed her.
    
He says three deputies knocked on Scott's door. Fortunato says Scott answered, holding a knife, ignored repeated orders to drop it, and made an aggressive movement with it. He says all three fired.
