NYPD Shooting Caught on Video

A confrontation between police and a knife-wielding man was captured by multiple passers-by


The typical afternoon furor in Times Square became something more menacing on Saturday as throngs of police officers drew their weapons and pursued a man with a large knife down Seventh Avenue and then shot him to death.

The scene was chaotic, confusing and almost certainly dangerous. Yet many bystanders stopped to watch, record video and take photos.
