INDIALANTIC, Fla. (AP) - A knife-wielding man was fatally shot by law enforcement officers who responded to a domestic disturbance call at a house in Indialantic.

Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/UYqej8 ) reports several nearby Brevard County Sheriff's deputies stopped to help Indialantic police Sunday evening. Shortly after they arrived, the man grabbed a knife and charged at them in the garage.

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey says the deputies fired at the man. His name has not been released, pending notification of family members. The sheriff's office has taken over the investigation and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the use of deadly force.

The deputies involved have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure. No further details were immediately available.
