NYPD Officers Fatally Shoot Suspect With Knife

Cops in the Bronx have shot and killed a suspect who lunged at them with a knife.

Officers responded to a call on Grand Avenue in the Morris Heights section late Sunday night when they encountered the 32-year-old suspect. The man had a knife in one hand and a stick in the other.

Officers used a Taser on the suspect, but said he continued to advance towards them. One of the officers shot the suspect in the torso and he later died at the hospital.

The knife and stick were both recovered at the scene.
