Live Boston reports an incident outside 22 Glendale St. in Dorchester around 2:40 a.m. ended with one police officer stabbed and a man in his 40s fatally shot.

BPD Superintendent-in-Chief Gregory Long said this morning that officers responding to a call for a disturbance in the street "were confronted by an adult male, brandishing a knife." In an altercation that followed, the man, 48, stabbed one officer in "the upper torso" and another officer shot him.

The man was pronounced at the scene. The officer is expected to recover.

The Suffolk County District Attorney's office will now conduct an investigation into the shooting.

We expect them to handle the impossible in dealing with people who are suffering from severe mental problems. This is a sad situation all around.
