The Times has an updated story. Here's some of their report:
When they confronted him on the sixth floor, he jumped out a window and climbed down the fire escape, Chief O’Neill said. The detectives were able to catch up to him on the first floor.
“A violent physical struggle ensued, during which the suspect grabbed one of the police officer’s walkie-talkies and struck the detective in the head,” Chief O’Neill said.
The struggle lasted for about five minutes he said, ending when one of the detectives fired a single shot into the man’s torso.
The detectives, who were in plain clothes and who were not identified, each had over 20 years with the department.
