40/29 reports on a Washington County deputy sheriff's fatal shooting of a man he said threatened him with a knife this afternoon in a Fayetteville tire store.

Cpl. Brad Robinson, who was at Tire Tracks on School Avenue to repair a patrol car flat tire, said a man pulled a knife out of a backpack and advanced toward him. He said he pulled his gun and told the man to stop, then fired when the man lunged at him. He said he hadn't interacted with the man before the shooting.

Fayetteville police are investigating.
