Since the knife wielder is a female she has to go down first, Then go for the person with the gun.
There is a very good reason I asked for gender. Because of height and upper body strength differences a women is much more likely to raise the knife above her shoulder and stab downwards. If the knife is long enough this motion can hit every vital organ in your chest plus the major vessels feeding your brain. A man is more likely to stab straight in or slash.
Now, consider that both of them were at your stated 30 feet, and that the woman was in full sprint, she was probably in the other attackers field of fire. That also makes her the much more dangerous attacker.
