Knife-wielding man shot, killed by police in Times Square: The shooting, which took place at 3 p.m. Saturday, happened after the man reportedly threatened tourists and bystanders, was sprayed with pepper spray, and attempted to rush police. “He continued to advance on uniformed officers, refusing officers’ repeated commands to drop his weapon,” said police spokesperson Paul J. Brown. The shooting happened at a particularly rough hour for something like this — at a point in the week when Times Square is loaded with tourists. (photo by Lincoln Rocha for The New York Times)
EDIT: Via MegsOkay, here’s video of the shooting.
