Police shot and injured a Dublin man this morning after he allegedly walked toward officers with a large knife, a spokesman said today. Blaine Cox contacted police at 9:22 a.m. saying his son, Ryan Cox, 28, was causing a disturbance at their home on Frederiksen Lane, according to Lt. Herb Walters. Blaine said Ryan was punching holes in his wall, and told police he was afraid of his son. Officers met with Blaine in front of his house.

As they were speaking to him, a suspect, later identified as Ryan, stepped out of the garage carrying a knife, described as being around 10 inches long, Walters said. Ryan allegedly refused to listen to commands and walked toward an officer, who at that point feared an attack and fired several rounds. Ryan was struck in the upper torso and arm, and was taken to an area hospital for treatment with injuries that were not considered to be life threatening, Walters said. Police plan to ask prosecutors to file a charge of assault with a deadly weapon against Ryan, Walters said. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call (925) 833-6682.
