NYPD Kills Slasher in Manhattan [VIDEO]

New York police shot and killed a knife-wielding man in midtown Manhattan on Wednesday morning after he reportedly stabbed a woman. The New York Post reports the man stabbed a woman, citing authorities and eyewitnesses. (The Wall Street Journal’s law enforcement reporter confirmed the stabbing.) He reportedly lunged at police before he was shot by an officer and a sergeant, and Yahoo News reports that one of the policemen, who was minorly injured in the struggle, was in tears after the shooting. Police reportedly fired nine shots at the man, but it was not clear how man times he was hit. NBC 4 New York reports the 46-year-old man was dressed in business-casual attire. The 46-year-old woman was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening graze wounds from the knife and is expected to recover. The incident reportedly started with the man, who police described as belligerent, arguing with a store clerk after he went inside to buy beer.
