NYPD Shoots, Wounds Knife-Wielding Man

NYPD officers shot and wounded a knife-wielding man on Wednesday in what some have described as a possible "suicide-by-cop" situation.

The suspect called 911 on himself and refused to drop a knife when officers arrived and instructed him to do so.

Officers ultimately fired at the suspect, striking him three times in the torso, after the man allegedly lunged at the officers.

The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment and is listed in critical condition; however, he is expected to survive.
