NORTH ROYALTON

A man fatally shot by a police officer after authorities say the man stabbed another officer outside Cleveland has been identified.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office on Monday identified the man as 45-year-old Jun Wang. He died at a hospital after being shot Friday in North Royalton. The injured officer was treated at a hospital for knife wounds to his face and leg and released Saturday.

A North Royalton police spokesman says police were called to a condominium to help paramedics get Wang into an ambulance for a court-ordered admission to a mental-health facility. Family members have said Wang had a history of mental illness, including schizophrenia.

North Royalton Detective Dave Loeding wouldn’t release the names of the two veteran police officers.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
