What's our "nabe" coming to?
An apparent domestic dispute inside an Upper East Side apartment ended in a police-involved shooting this afternoon, police said. The shooting erupted after a NYPD officer arrived on the scene on East 65th Street, near 1st Avenue, just before 3 p.m. A young man was holding his mother at knifepoint, which prompted his sister to call police. Police said they tried to subdue the man with a Taser, but shot him after authorities said he wouldn’t drop the knife. Police hit the man three times and the mother was accidentally hit in the buttocks by at least one bullet while trying to get away from her son. The man was taken to the hospital, reportedly in stable condition. Both are expected to survive and charges are pending.
