SEATTLE, WA - A Seattle cop shot and killed a suspect, believed to have earlier rammed into a patrol car, after he charged at the officer with a 16-inch knife. The whole thing was caught on police dash cam video.

The video shows the officer approaching the car after noticing that it matched the description of the car involved in a hit-and-run that happened about a half hour earlier. The officer identified himself and then things quickly turned fatal.

The officer is now on paid administrative leave while officials investigate whether or not reasonable force was used.
