Police Shoot, Kill Man Near NYC Times Square

Police shot and killed a man they say lunged at them with a knife in a confrontation that began in Times Square and drew officers and spectators on a chase that ended with shots fired near one of New York's most crowded tourist areas.
The encounter played out Saturday around 3 p.m., when officers approached a 51-year-old man they say appeared to be smoking marijuana near West 44th Street and Seventh Avenue, in the heart of Times Square.
The man became agitated, pulled out an 11-inch knife and began to put a bandanna on his head, police said. He refused repeated orders to drop the weapon and began backing down the avenue, continuing for a number of blocks and drawing many officers into a slow-speed pursuit that took them south of Times Square.
According to the police account, officers pepper sprayed the man six times but he held onto the knife throughout the seven-block pursuit. At West 37th Street, he lunged at police and two officers shot him in the torso, police said. He was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital.
Witnesses recalled a chaotic scene in which some bystanders took cover, while others began following the procession down the avenue in an attempt to capture cellphone video of it. On video obtained by NY1 cable news station, a number of officers, guns drawn, can be seen pursuing the man as he appears to skip down Seventh Avenue.
"He was swinging at people as he ran," Jobby Nogver, a 17-year-old visiting from Boston, told The New York Times. Nogver watched as police surrounded the man and fired. "I can't tell you how many shots," he said.
Priscilla Rocha, a tourist from Brazil, was visiting Times Square with her husband when they saw the confrontation.
"I almost had a heart attack," she told the Times. "Everyone started running."


and now, enjoy your brief tour of Times Square 2012 (i hate the new nypd sirens.. sound like retarded futuristic weapons of Mars destruction.. the mid/low frequency siren.. bloooop... bloooop.. bloo..)

Re: Police Shoot, Kill Man Near NYC Times Square

Jesus how many cops they need for one man? lol must have been about 20 and at the end there is a van pulling up right before he is shot.

Also...lolz at the fucking idiots who did not see the kill saying "that wasn't a justified kill at all"

Re: Police Shoot, Kill Man Near NYC Times Square

I suppose shooting him in the leg wouldn't work, or are the cops so ridiculously untrained they couldn't hit a leg???

in gun class they teach you to aim for the body, not the head. the motto is shoot to wound, not to kill.. or something like that. also im surprised they shot him with so many people around in a public street. they usually dont aim for limbs in the fear of a stray bullet hitting a bystander.

If the man was armed with a gun, then yeah, he's a bigger threat, so shoot him in the head if possible.

But the guy was armed with a Knife, surrounded by armed Police...they didn't need to kill him.

Shame
