Police clear house and shoot man armed with knife

Police in this video clear a house room by room with a mix of best practice and sloppier methodsĀ (in particular brazenly opening doors and sticking their head or guns in) before they are confronted with a man who attacks with a knife. Luckily, in the last room they did not approach the closet door immediately and open it, allowing enough of a reactionary gap to avoid being stabbed.
