December 29, 2022

MEDFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Police shot a man to death after he stabbed two officers during a confrontation on Long Island, New York, late Wednesday afternoon, law enforcement officials said.

Suffolk County police said in a statement that the two officers were seriously injured, but did not provide their conditions. The Suffolk County Police Benevolent Association said both officers were in critical but stable condition. Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison told Newsday the officers’ injuries were not life-threatening.

Police said they responded to an altercation between two adults in Medford at about 5 p.m. One of the men involved in the altercation stabbed two officers, and one or more officers fatally shot the man, according to a police statement. It wasn’t immediately clear if the stabbed officers were the ones who shot the man.

Authorities said a third officer was brought to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, but did not elaborate.

Police did not immediately release other details, including the names of the officers and the man who was killed.
