Illinois state police are investigating a fatal shooting in north suburban Evanston involving a police officer.The shooting happened in the 1800 block of Church Street not far from Evanston High School.

Apparently, the incident began as a dispute between the man and his landlord. The man was armed with a knife, and when Evanston police officers tried to convince him to put it down, the man refused and lunged at an officer. That's when officers opened fire.

One officer was stabbed in the hand.
