CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. (CBS/AP) -- An investigation is underway after a fatal police-involved shooting in Montgomery County. Officers were called to Plymouth Garden Apartments in Plymouth Township at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday after reports of an armed subject.

When officers arrived, they found a 22-year-old man armed with a handgun and a woman outside suffering from multiple stab wounds. The man reportedly did not comply with officers' commands and was shot when he pointed the gun at them.
