EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan (WABC) — A gunman killed a man and was then fatally shot by police during a confrontation outside a lounge in Manhattan’s East Village early Thursday, authorities said.
The NYPD says two uniformed officers were on patrol in the park when they heard gunshots and saw one man shooting at another.
The officers gave numerous commands for the shooter to get onto the ground, Chief of Department Terence Monahan said.
“He refused,” Monahan said. “He kept on walking.”
Officers then fired three times, fatally wounding the gunman.
