The Daily News reports:
An NYPD sergeant and officer, both assigned to Police Service Area 4, found a 25-year-old man brandishing a knife, cops said. The man ignored the officers’ repeated commands to drop the knife.
“He kept advancing on them in a threatening manner,” an NYPD spokesman said.
The man, who was shot once in the chest, was taken to Bellevue where his injuries didn't appear to be life threatening, per the Daily News. The paper also described the man as "emotionally disturbed."
WPIX reports that the man, whose grandmother lives in the building, has more than 12 prior arrests.
