The sole requirement for the legitimate application of deadly force is that a reasonable danger of death or grievous bodily injury is present.

If a suspects actions pose such a threat, by whatever means at all (i.e., knife, firearm, vehicle, hammer, or even fists alone, if the beating is severe enough to rise to endangering life) any person (not only a LEO) has a right to use deadly force to end the assault and remove the threat, as long as they were not guilty of illegally provoking the attack.
