MOULTRIE — A man is dead after a shooting Monday in Northwest Moultrie involving local law enforcement.

The man's identity is being withheld by officials.

Steve Turner, special agent in charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Thomasville office, said the man threatened a Moultrie police officer with a knife after the officer went to his residence to question him about a broken window at a local store. The officer retreated and called for the SWAT team, Turner said.

Early Monday afternoon, the SWAT team entered the residence on Seventh Street Northwest. Turner said the man again came at officers with a butcher knife and was shot.
