DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A former football player who was shot by Daytona Beach police as he held a knife to a woman's throat remains in critical condition in the hospital.
Police Chief Mike Chitwood says 37-year-old Katrina Johnson was also shot in the arm when officers opened fire on 32-year-old Jermaine Green early Wednesday morning. Johnson is in good condition in the hospital.
Police were called to the home and forced their way inside. Green was holding a knife to Johnson's throat, and when he refused to drop the knife, officers opened fire. Chitwood says Green pressed the knife against the woman's chest and the officers "had no choice" but to open fire.
Chitwood says Green was a former local football player. He was signed to the New York Giants in 2004.
