NYPD Involved Shooting | QUEENS, NY 1.8.21

MASPETH, QUEENS, NEW YORK – At Approximately 6:20pm officers from the 104 Precinct responded to 54-55 64th Street for a 41 year old male with a knife destroying the basement of the residence and hallucinating. Four officers met with the male after walking down a narrow staircase to the basement and tried to convince the male to go to the hospital for about 10 minutes. The male abruptly pulled out a large knife and yelled that he isn’t going back to the hospital. The male lunged at one of the officers that was on the staircase and was tased. Two shots were fired by an officer as well. The male was taken to a hospital where he is in critical condition. Officers responded to the same location earlier today and the male was taken to the hospital for hallucinating and contemplating suicide. He was released by the hospital. There was one other call earlier this week to the same residence. Officers involved were also taken to a nearby hospital. (Source – Press Conference, Preliminary Information)
