Officers shoot knife-wielding man in Bushwick

Police recovered a knife after cops shot the man charging at them with the blade in BNYPD

Cops in Bushwick shot a knife-wielding man Wednesday night after he charged at them, police said.

Two officers responded to a domestic abuse call at a home on Hancock Street around 8 p.m. Inside the building, the cops tangled with the 26-year-old man, ordering him to drop the knife.

Instead, the as-yet unidentified man lunged at the officers. One officer fired his gun, shooting the man in the stomach.

Paramedics rushed the man to Kings County Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
