ALBANY, NY—An Albany Police officer was stabbed in the arm and the suspect then shot by police midday Monday in Albany, police said.

Both the officer and the suspect were taken for treatment and were in stable condition later Monday afternoon, police said.

The incident began at around 11:50 a.m. in the 100 block of Franklin Street, police said.

Officers responded there for reports of a domestic and found that a man involved had outstanding warrants from previous incidents, police said.

"While attempting to take the man into custody for the outstanding warrants, he stabbed an Albany police officer in the arm with a knife," Albany Police spokesman Steve Smith said on Twitter. "An Albany police officer shot the suspect in the torso."

More information was expected to be released later Monday, Smith said.
