Fort Worth Police shot and killed a man they say was stabbing a woman.  Investigators say it started when neighbors heard screaming and threats to throw a woman off a balcony just before 7:30 Sunday morning.  Officers responded to the apartment complex on Normandale Street near 820 and Camp Bowie Blvd.  Officers say they caught the man in the act of stabbing the woman.

Police described the scene as horrific and they had only seconds to react to stop the man.  The woman survived the attack but her condition is serious.  Investigators say the couple are believed to be boyfriend and girlfriend.

The names of the deceased suspect and the woman haven't been released and it's not yet known exactly how many officers were involved in the shooting.  Those involved have been placed on routine administrative leave.
