Police ID stabbing suspect fatally shot by officers in the Bronx

An investigation is underway after police shot and killed a man they say stabbed two security guards in the Bronx

Police fatally shot a knife-wielding man after responding to a stabbing in a Bronx home for the mentally ill on Monday, cop sources said.

It wasn't immediately led to the shooting at the Hughes House on Hughes Avenue in Tremont just before 8 p.m., but police said the suspect was pronounced dead not long afterward.

The suspect, who'd once lived there, jumped over a counter to attack the two women, a source said.

Both women, Kathy Hope, 48, and Michelle Sutton, 29, according to the NY Daily News, were hospitalized.

Two of the officers opened fire and the man was struck and killed. The armed man did not comply, and instead stepped toward the officers with the knife displayed in his right hand.

However, he began advancing towards officers and was shot multiple times. The suspect was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he expired. One female sustained a knife wound to her left arm, the other to her chest and arm. Both are in serious condition at St. Barnabas Hospital and are expected to survive.

The shooting was captured on police body cams, and will be reviewed by the NYPD's Force Investigation Division, which investigates such incidents. This footage will be reviewed and included as part of the ongoing investigation.
