NORTH CAROLINA-(FOX NEWS)-A North Carolina police officer shared a feel-good update to an incident in which he and a suspect both could have lost their lives.

Raleigh police officer JD Boyd wrote on Facebook that nearly a year ago, he and a suspect were involved in a major altercation.

Boyd said during the confrontation, the man attempted to stab him in the head and he almost shot the man.

Just this week, he encountered the man again and all's forgiven.

Boyd said the man, who was not identified, spent time in prison, but now has a full-time job and is expecting another son in November.

"I am ecstatic now to learn that he has turned his life around and we can embrace as friends. No one is ever lost forever and as long as you continue to work to be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday things will work out eventually," he wrote.
