Salisbury police told local media outlets the man robbed a First National Bank branch and led officers on a chase to Thomasville, about 30 miles (136 km) away.
Authorities say the suspect left the car and tried to run into a hobby shop. The store owner tried to stop him from coming in, but the suspect stabbed that person multiple times. Police officers confronted the suspect, and after their stun guns failed to affect him, one of the officers shot him.
The suspect's identity hasn't been released.
