One man is dead after a police officer responded to a call near Geyer Springs Road in southwest Little Rock.  KTHV reports a man armed with a knife had cut himself and family members.  Two officers responded to the scene and, fearing the man was going to attack them, fired shots.  A press release from Lt. Terry Hastings, the public affairs officer for the Little Rock Police Department says the man who was killed was Landris Hawkins, a 28-year-old black male.  An investigation into the shooting is underway.
