Read this article today and what I took away from it was that the ploice defended themselves with their handguns and the knife wielding man was hit, but was still able to attack. Eventually the man died, but there was no magic bullet that stopped the man in his tracks with one shot. Something to remember while training or (heaven forbid) you find yourself in a similar situation.
Police shoot triple stabbing suspect at party | News - Home

Shoot them to the ground.
If he had already stabbed 3 people and was attacking the officers I see no problem with shooting them to the ground [+ 1 40Bob]
Yep, shoot until the threat is stopped. Anything worth shooting once is worth shooting a couple of times.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Knives have been making people dead since before recorded history. Shoot him until he stops giving you a legal reason to.

Everything indicates this to be an entirely righteous shooting. It is quite apparent that deadly force, to stop the actor, would have been justifiable well before police arrived, but this particular cultural segment of the population tends to not own firearms. This suspect was seemingly already self-anesthetized against pain, before the officers arrived.
It was a wild weekend for Houston-area law enforcement! This was not HPD's only OIS that night, and officers were injured (minor, thankfully) at both locations. Something seemed to be in the air... Last night, I brought the shotgun out of the car with me more than once, as a precaution.
One BG less in the world. The police did their jobs. I hope they don't catch flack in the media for this shooting; it sounds completely justified.
Though defensive violence will always be a sad necessity in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men -St. Augustine
What I took away from the account is that the officers did not use "unnecessary force". Fired once, then reevaluated the threat. My CCW instructor (LEO) made it a point to emphasize "excessive force" as part of the training. A completely different mindset from my military training.

Nothing against the OP, but why ask if this was a good shoot. If you have a deadly weapon and the police show up. If you do not put down this weapon you are going to be shot. Why the surprise????
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
Good job to the cops
If I ever have to shoot anyone, I'll probably reload at least once...
Good job Cops. Shoot because he will not hesitate to stab you if he gets a chance. "just wondering did the bad gun have an "assault" knife because he can't possibly hurt someone with kitchen knife." anti 2a hat off. God bless all first responders that keep the streets safe
