Man waves with knife at Police, gets 12 Bullets back near Times Square, New York

New York police shot and killed a knife-wielding man near Times Square after he led a long trail of officers and camera-wielding gawkers on a slow-motion chase.

Police said the incident started when officers confronted 51-year-old Darrius Kennedy of Long Island for smoking marijuana in the middle of Times Square at West 44th Street and Seventh Avenue.

The man pulled out a knife while three officers were talking to him on a sidewalk, and then the police pulled out their guns.

Police pepper-sprayed him six times but that he didn’t surrender, and that when he lunged at them on West 37th Street they opened fire.

Two officers fired 12 shots and hit Kennedy in the chest, groin, left arm.
