NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A police sniper killed a father holding a knife to his 3-year-old daughter’s throat inside an Olympia, Wash., home after he attacked his cousin Sunday, authorities said.

The SWAT sharpshooter gunned down the unidentified man with one shot at around 8:30 p.m. local time after watching the suspect use the little girl as a human shield, Thurston County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said.

The father barricaded himself in a bedroom with the girl, authorities saw through the home’s window.

“They could see he was holding a knife against his daughter — using her as a shield,” Ziesemer told KOMO-TV. “We felt her life was in danger.”

The girl was not hurt during the ordeal.
