JEFFERSON CITY (WATE) - Jefferson City's police chief and another officer are on paid administrative leave after their involvement in a deadly shooting Monday.

Officers responded to 1028 Martha Glass Drive at 9:05 a.m. after receiving reports of a male suspect armed with a knife assaulting another man.

At 9:07 a.m., the first officer arrived on scene, ordering the suspect, Tracy Lynn Daniel, 51, to drop his weapon. Officers say Daniel refused.

Two minutes later, additional officers arrived on scene and unsuccessfully negotiated with Daniel to drop his weapon.

Officials say the officers deployed all non-lethal force available to them, including shooting Daniel with bean bag weapons and taser guns, which did not affect Daniel.

Officials say he then charged officers with the knife, leaving them with no choice but to fire their guns to stop the attack.

Daniel was pronounced dead at Jefferson Memorial Hospital.

The two officers involved in the shooting are identified as Police Chief Kenneth Davis and Detective Michael Stallings.

Both are on administrative leave with pay, pending the outcome of the investigation.
