PORTER RANCH, Calif. -- (KTLA) -- Los Angeles police on Saturday released footage showing the moment an officer shot and wounded a suspected stabber in Porter Ranch.

An officer responding to a stabbing call the night of June 20 opened fire on 53-year-old Alen Alpanian, who has since pleaded not guilty to attempted murder in the attack of his ex-wife.

The victim sustained abdominal injuries but was expected to recover, according to police.

In the 911 call included in the video released by LAPD, the caller tells the dispatcher that a woman lying on the floor was saying that her husband had stabbed her.

The footage then shows recordings from body cameras worn by two officers, according to the Police Department.

In the video, residents are seen gathering around a woman down on a sidewalk. When an officer asks if there were any guns inside the house where the suspect was, one person says no.
