3. SOUNDBITE (English) Mayor Pete Buttigieg, (D) Presidential Candidate:
"Even though we don't know much I thought it was important sooner rather than later for us to make clear how this process is going to work and also to state the community's values. Because the community is tested when there is an incident like this. The relationship between the officers who are sworn to keep this community safe and everybody who lives here is among the most important things we have as a city. So when an incident like this happens, I want to make sure it's understood how it's dealt with, how it's approached, and that we care."
Authorities say a man has died after a shooting involving a police officer in South Bend, the Indiana city where Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is mayor.
Buttigieg said he changed his campaign schedule to return to South Bend Sunday and hold a late night press conference. He said that the circumstances of the death would be thoroughly investigated.
Buttigieg said: "We will be striving to reach out to community members." He called on any witnesses of the shooting to come forward and speak to investigators.
The St. Joseph prosecutor's office, which is investigating, says that police responded early Sunday to a call about a suspicious person going through cars. A police officer confronted a man in a vehicle in an apartment building parking lot. The prosecutor's office says the man exited the vehicle and approached the officer with a knife raised and the officer opened fire.
The man, later identified as 53-year-old Eric Jack Logan of South Bend, died later at a hospital.
The officer, who was not identified, was treated for minor injuries.
