A New York man stabbed four members of his family and injured two police officers. The publication reported on the attack, which occurred early in the morning on November 3 Fox News.
On November 3 around 5:10 a.m., a teenage girl called police. She claimed that her cousin "killed members of her family."
Officers arrived at an apartment building at 467 Beach 22nd Street and saw suspect Courtney Gordon, 38, attempting to flee with large bags in his hands. The man stabbed both cops, one in the head and the other in the neck. After this, one of the policemen shot Gordon.
Before fleeing, Gordon set the house on fire, so police had to wait for firefighters to arrive before entering the building.
