NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A man killed by a Neillsville police officer last Friday has been identified as 23-year-old Ricky Taylor.  

Officer Aaron Bembnister responded to a domestic disturbance at a home in Neillsville early last Friday morning.  

Officials said Taylor was carrying a knife when the officer confronted him -- and Taylor was shot after he approached the officer and ignored numerous requests to drop the knife. Taylor died later at a Marshfield hospital.  

The 24-year-old Bembnister is on administrative leave while the incident remains under investigation by the state Justice Department and Clark County sheriff's deputies.
