Knife-wielding man fatally shot by police in the Bronx

Knife-wielding man fatally shot by police in the Bronxā€¯

When the landlord opened the door to the tenant's apartment, officers found the tenant with a knife in one hand, and his other hand behind his back, according to NYPD Chief of Department Carlos Gomez.

Police fatally shot a man in the Bronx Wednesday after he pointed a fake gun at them while they visited his home for a wellness check, the NYPD said.

It happened around 4 p.m. on Pratt Avenue in the Wakefield section.

The man, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene, where investigators recovered a knife and a fake, silver and black handgun with a red laser sight, Gomez said.

One of the officers noticed a gun in the man's right hand and they asked him to drop it. It wasn't immediately clear if he responded, but he refused to drop it when they ordered him to, police said.

Officers arrived at the scene after receiving a call from the man's landlord, who told police he was concerned about his tenants well being, according to an NYPD official.

Officials say the shooting was all captured on NYPD body cams, which were deployed in April starting in Washington Heights.

A man was killed in a police-involved shooting in the Bronx on Wednesday.

"The officers gave verbal commands and engaged the suspect", NYPD Chief of Patrol Terry Monahan told CBS New York then.
