CARROLLTON, Va. (AP) -- The sheriff's office in Isle of Wight County says a deputy fatally shot a man they said attacked him with a knife.
A spokesman for the sheriff's office, Kristin Wilda, told media outlets the confrontation Friday ended in the death of 31-year-old James William Wallace.
No deputies were injured.
Deputies had gone to Wallace's Carrollton house to serve a warrant.
State Police will conduct an investigation. The sheriff's office also will conduct its own internal investigation.
