NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a knife-wielding man who refused to drop his weapon has been fatally shot by an NYPD officer.
The shooting happened Thursday night on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Police say a 28-year-old woman flagged down a patrol car and told the officers she was involved in a dispute with her boyfriend, who was inside an apartment on East 83rd Street.
The officers said that as they approached the apartment, a 39-year-old man appeared holding a large knife.
Police say the officers told the man to drop the knife, he ignored the order and one of the officers shot him once in the torso.
The wounded man was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
A knife was recovered at the scene.
