Incident in a synagogue - level 2
A man stabbed a Jewish student in the ankle in a Brooklyn synagogue. Police arrived at the scene and confronted the 49-year-old African American.
He was in the synagogue. He waved the knife around and threatened others. The police told him to put the knife down, but he would not do so. A policeman shot him dead.
People moved the 22 year-old student to hospital and he should be fine.
