The Sacramento Police Department is investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred early this morning. 

An officer shot and killed a man who had a warrant for his arrest early this morning after a short foot chase. 

"It started in the area of North, just east of Marysville and that individual fled down the alley," Officer Doug Morse said. 

Morse says the suspect pulled out a knife.

"The officers were forced to fire upon that individual and he has been declared deceased," Morse said. 

The area of Harris Avenue and Marysville Boulevard is being blocked off as authorities investigate and gather information regarding the incident.

No officers were injured during the shooting.
