Officer fatally shoots man who refuses to drop machete

Those officers were responding to calls about a man attempting suicide and in need of help.

A suspect has died following a police-involved shooting early Tuesday morning in the Bronx.

The NYPD said officers were conducting a search warrant at an apartment building on Brook Avenue near East 138th Street in Mott Haven when they encountered the armed man threatening officers.

The officers went into a rear bedroom where the man confronted them with a knife that had a 2-foot long blade.

As for reports that the vaccine is only 10 percent effective this year, Tebb says it may be too early to crunch those numbers. If you get the flu , the vaccine can make it less severe and the more people who are vaccinated, the better off everyone is.

"The uniformed officers ordered the subject to drop the weapon and he refused to comply", Chief Monahan said.

The man, who was not identified, was shot in a third floor Bronx apartment just after 4 a.m. "As the subject continued to approach the lead officer, the officer discharged one shot from his service firearm, striking the subject once in the chest". Sanabria was pronounced dead at Lincoln Hospital.

The warrant was apparently obtained to search for guns and drugs in the apartment. In the same apartment there was an elderly man who was not injured during the police operation.
