An 18-year-old man and a 63-year-old man were fatally shot in separate police involved shootings in Brooklyn overnight, police said.

Officers were investigating a report of a nonviolent emotionally disturbed person inside the residence when a man entered the kitchen, picked up a 13-inch knife and advanced at the officers, police said. The officers heard gunfire coming from the vicinity of 990 Atlantic Ave and saw a male firing a gun into a lounge.

It's unclear what led police to open fire on the man just before 3:30 a.m. but he was shot at least once by an officer or officers and rushed to Brooklyn Hospital in cardiac arrest.

A knife police say was recovered at the scene of a police-involved shooting on 99th Street in Brooklyn on January 3, 2017.


A revolver was found at the crime scene, police said. "The officers immediately rendered aid to the male and requested an ambulance", said NYPD Chief of Patrol Terence Monahan. It was not clear how many times the officer shot Owens.

NYPD officers shot and killed two suspects in two incidents several hours apart in Brooklyn.

An officer used a taser on Owens, but it had no impact since the knife-wielding suspect continued to advance toward the officers. Owens was taken to Brookdale hospital and pronounced dead, police said.

An investigation is ongoing.
