PORTER RANCH (CBSLA) — An upscale, gated community in Porter Ranch was rattled Thursday by a stabbing and officer-involved shooting.
Officers were sent out to a home in the 20000 block of Sardinia Avenue at about 11 p.m. Wednesday to investigate a report of domestic violence and found a woman lying outside with stab wounds and a man coming out of the residence with a knife.READ MORE: 3 Teens Killed In Pasadena Crash

“Officers gave numerous commends for him to drop the knife, however, he failed to comply,” LAPD Sgt. Barry Montgomery said.
Police confirmed the man and the woman had some sort of relationship, so the stabbing was not a random crime. The knife has been recovered.MORE NEWS: Metro Officials Renew Commitment To Bolster Safety Following Death Of Nurse Sandra Shells
