Officials released the identity of the man killed in a police-involved shooting in Hamilton on Saturday, April 22.

Hamilton police said Officer Steven McFall shot and killed 24-year-old Michael Wilson-Salzl after Wilson-Salzl confronted the officer with a large knife

McFall, 41, was responding to a reported shooting on Forest Park Drive, at around 3 p.m.

When McFall arrived on scene, he was confronted by Wilson-Salzl.

Wilson-Salzl was armed with a large knife, described as a "butcher knife," Hamilton Police Chief Craig Bucheit said Saturday. 

During a brief confrontation, McFall fired his weapon at the male.

Wilson-Salzl was pronounced dead at the scene. He died of "gunshot wounds," according to the Butler County Coroner's Office.

McFall was not wearing a body camera. Investigators are looking at cruiser cam.  

Findings from the investigation will be presented to a Butler County grand jury by the end of the week.
