OMAHA, Nebraska — Omaha police say the officer who shot a man suspected of stabbing two other people has six years on the force.

She was identified in a department news release as Angela Lydon.

The shooting occurred around 6:30 a.m. Sunday at a home in southeast Omaha, after officers were sent there to handle a report about a disturbance.

Officers say they found 38-year-old Jennifer Hickman outside the home with critical injuries and then encountered a 42-year-old man with a knife. Police say Lydon fired and struck the armed man once. Then officers found 63-year-old Walter Hickman with knife wounds.

The Hickmans and the man who was shot were taken to a hospital for treatment. They are expected to survive their wounds.

No officers were injured.
