When ESU officers arrived, they confronted the man as he came out of the apartment with a foot-long kitchen knife.
The man advanced toward police, they said, and did not comply with orders to drop the knife.
Officers fired a Taser and a rubber projectile and then fired a Taser again. Then, according to the NYPD, the man slashed the vest of one officer with his knife and punctured a first-aid kit on another officer’s vest.
Then, officers fired, according to the NYPD, striking him in the torso.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
