A Minco police officer is stabbed during an incident near Tuttle on Tuesday.

According to law enforcement, a mental patient called the Grady County Sheriff's Office claiming he was the Anti-Christ and going to burn his house down with his family inside. A Minco Police officer called and offered to assist deputies on the call.

According to the sheriff's department, the suspect attacked the officer with a knife, stabbing him twice, once in the shoulder and once in the back of the head.

The Minco officer attempted to use a Taser on Mason but it didn't work, so he opened fire on him, hitting him in the leg.
