BCA says deputy stumbled and fell as man with knife charged in Chanhassen, prompting 2 deputies to shoot him

A Carver County sheriff's deputy stumbled backward and fell while a man wielding a knife charged outside a Chanhassen home, prompting two fellow deputies to shoot the suspect, state investigators said Wednesday.

Along with that detail from the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) regarding the confrontation Saturday afternoon at the home in the 7800 block of Harvest Lane, the agency also disclosed that gunfire from two deputies wounded 31-year-old Derek Anthony Tyler West.

The BCA identified the deputies who shot West as James Horvath, who has 19 years of law enforcement experience, and Benjamin Sinko, who has been in law enforcement for 4½ years. Video from the deputies' body cameras is being reviewed as part of the investigation, the agency said.
