The report notes that the incident in question occurred in the Queens area. A girl reported an attack on her family to the police. Arriving at the scene, the police found a suspicious man with a suitcase.
After a short conversation, he pulled out a knife and attacked the officers, wounding them in the face and neck. They, in turn, opened fire on the attacker. He died on the way to the hospital.
It is noteworthy that a fire was breaking out near the scene at that time. When the fire was extinguished, rescuers found four bodies in one of the apartments.
A similar case previously occurred in Chelyabinsk, where a man armed with a knife attacked passengers on a regular bus. As previously reported, two criminal cases were opened against him.
