City of Redding police officers were dispatched to a home in the 2900 Block of Lanning Avenue just before 8 p.m., after receiving reports that Khalil Rashaud Hadley, 23, of Redding, had just attempted to stab a family member while threatening to kill him, Redding PD has since said of the armed encounter.

When officers arrived they located Hadley, who was still armed with “a large butcher knife”, nearby, according to officials who added, “Officers were able to convince Hadley to surrender without incident.”
