FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Fresno police say an officer shot and killed a parolee after he stabbed a woman to death while officers were just outside his door.

Police responded to a domestic violence call at the apartment on Monday afternoon. Police Chief Jerry Dyer says officers heard the woman inside screaming as they approached the door.

When they knocked, the suspect allegedly threatened to kill the woman. A few second later, Dyer says he told officers it was too late.

The officers kicked open the door to find the woman with multiple stab wounds to her chest. Dyer says the man was shot during an ensuing confrontation.

Neither the woman nor the man has been identified. Police believe they were romantically involved in the past.

The Fresno Bee reports the suspect was on parole for an assault with a deadly weapon conviction.
