Published on August 11, 2012
Cops fatally shot a knife-wielding man in broad daylight near Times Square this afternoon after chasing him down Seventh Avenue from 44th Street to 37th Street, sources told The Post. The victim sustained multiple gun shot wounds. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital at 3:12 p.m. while experiencing cardiac arrest and later died.
The madman, a 30-year-old male, had lunged at officers, who told him to drop the knife. When he refused to let go of the weapon, they pepper-sprayed him. When he wouldn't go down, at least one cop fired in plain sight of shocked witnesses, sources said.
