Two people have died from wounds they suffered in Forest Hill yesterday.

Reports say the woman was stabbed at the Quik Trip near I-20 and Wichita. Police arrived to find the woman gravely wounded and the man hiding in the creek running behind the store.

Paramedics rushed her to the hospital but she did not survive.

Back at the Quik Trip, the attacker was still armed with the knife and refused to put it down as officers approached. He made motions like he was going to harm himself.

Hoping to save him, officers tried less lethal means including pelting him with bean bag rounds. That did nothing to stop him and then he began approaching the police with the knife in his hands. That's when an officer shot him. He, too, died at the hospital.

Investigators have not said what the stabbing was all about. It's not clear how, or even if, the two knew one another.
