A man who stabbed and injured two people on a US tour bus has been shot dead by police.

Connecticut State officers said they are dealing with a language barrier as they investigate the incident, which ended with the man being shot dead by police on the Interstate 95 route.

Another trooper is interpreting for the many Asian people who were on the Dahlia bus from New York City to Mohegan Sun casino on Tuesday night.

Authorities said the unidentified man attacked passengers with a “cutting instrument”, and the driver flagged down a trooper at a highway construction site in Norwalk.

Officials say the trooper and the man got into a fight, and the trooper was forced to shoot him. The trooper was unhurt.

A bullet fired by the trooper ricocheted and injured a third passenger. The three injured passengers’ conditions have not yet been released.
