Rocky Mount Police say officers responded to two phone calls of a disturbance at a house Saturday night, and found 19-year-old Clarence Gerrod Eley holding a knife near a woman. One officer shot Eley twice and he died later at the hospital. The officer is now on administrative assignment while the State Bureau of Investigations looks into the case.
