A police officer shot and killed a man in Atalit who he said was attempting to run him down overnight Wednesday.

The police were called to the 49-year-old man's house to arrest him for violating a restraining order. The man, a taxi driver, sped towards the police officer - who said he feared for his life - who proceeded to shoot the man.

The police officer was lightly injured and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
