WASHINGTON (AP) — Police say an off-duty officer who shot a knife-wielding man at Washington’s Union Station is from Baltimore County, Maryland.

Police in Washington said Sunday that the off-duty officer saw 25-year-old Rashad Bugg-Bey slash a woman just outside the Metro subway station at Union Station around 8:15 p.m. Saturday. They say Bugg-Bey then approached the off-duty officer, ignoring his order to drop the knife.

Police say another woman also suffered a gunshot wound. She was treated and released.

Bugg-Bey and the woman who was slashed were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Bugg-Bey is charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Baltimore County Police Cpl. George Erhardt says the off-duty officer is with his agency. The officer’s name hasn’t been released.
