    A hammer-wielding man wanted in connection with a series of attacks in Manhattan was shot by a New York police officer on Wednesday on a busy Midtown street in a confrontation captured on surveillance video, the authorities said.

    The man, whom two police officials identified as David Baril, 30, was takento Bellevue Hospital Center, where he was in critical condition.

    Speaking at a news conference at the scene, at 37th Street and Eighth Avenue, the police commissioner, William J. Bratton, said Mr. Baril fit the description of an attacker who struck four people with a hammer on Monday around Union Square and Midtown.

    On Wednesday, two uniformed officers, Geraldo Casaigne, 36, and Lauren O’Rourke, 27, were on patrol in Midtown when they saw the man and believed him to be the suspect in the earlier attacks, Mr. Bratton said.

    The officers followed him from 38th Street along Eighth Avenue. After a block, the man turned and stopped at the corner of 37th Street.

    “He’s almost waiting for them as they cross the street,” Deputy Chief William Aubry, the commander of Manhattan detectives, said at an afternoon news conference in Midtown in which video of the shooting was shown.

    I can't believe the media framed this as "man with hammer shot by police" instead of "serial hammer-assault suspect stopped by police"


    This country really is going to shit...

    The pre-op tranny's in NYC usually bash people in the head at ATM's for tit money. This guy just sounded like some homeless wacko.

    Post after post of idiotic comments, one poster asked how come they could not use a net like civilized countries? The guy was dragging the cop down and was swinging the hammer at her and this limp wrist faggot wants them to pull out a fucking net?

    Liberalism is a disease.

    See? DiBlasio leaves town and our cops remember how to protect the city.

    Proof that DiBlasio causes a general decay of the quality of life in NYC, and has made the city more dangerous.
