Early Sunday morning, South Bend police responded to a call that a suspicious person was going through cars at an apartment complex, The Associated Press reported. The suspect, Eric Jack Logan, 53, reportedly approached an officer with a knife, and the officer shot him. The incident is under investigation by the St. Joseph prosecutor’s office.
