"My partner and I entered the house and found the suspect in a room waiving a knife with his wife and son just a few feet away. We got the wife and son behind us for protection and I ordered the suspect to drop the knife. He refused to drop the knife, so while my partner provided lethal cover, I transitioned from my handgun to my TASER ECD. At that point the suspect approached us and raised the knife over his head in an aggressive manner. As my partner maneuvered for a clear shot I discharged the TASER. The suspect fell to the floor, dropped the knife, and we were able to handcuff him without any further resistance. The suspect later told us that he wanted to kill everyone. If I didn't have my TASER ECD, there is no doubt we would have shot the suspect. Thank you TASER!"
