Bodycams Show Fatal Police Shooting At Bronx Homeless Shelter

** (Disclaimer: Video posted strictly for educational and information purposes only) **
The NYPD has released body cam video of a deadly police encounter at a Bronx homeless shelter. Just 16 days after the fatal shooting of Cornell Lockhart, police made public the tense moments before the officers opened fire. It happened at a facility in Tremont after Lockhart attacked two security guards. The NYPD released two videos, both 45 seconds long. The complete recording from the body cam of 11 year veteran officer Shawn Loftus, was recorded on November 13 at a supportive housing facility serving a troubled population of formerly homeless people. Long time resident, 67-year-old Cornell Lockhart, had just stabbed two female security guards with a steak knife. One of the injured guards can briefly be seen in video recorded by the second cop, rookie officer Nicole Krauss. The body cam video dramatically contradicts a claim from shelter resident Hannibal Ali over how many times police commanded ‘drop the knife.’ “They said it three times to him, no not twenty times, three times. I was standing there,” he said. According to the NYPD, Lockhart said ‘shoot me’ before stepping forward with the knife. Lockhart had a long history of mental health crisis and contacts with the police. Officers Loftus and Krauss remain on active duty in the 48th precinct.

  1. How'bout ONE shot, then wait a damn second to see if they are advancing… The cop was able to wait a minute, why not one more second after the first shot? Inb4 experts – I'm not interested, I've seen one-tap working plenty of times and where it didn't, allowing one second to assess the success of the first shot has been an option almost every time. Plenty of distance, no gun, no need to give lead poisoning.

  2. i swear these cops are just blood thirsty 2 kill . u have a old homeless man with a knife who's far away from u , why shoot to kill? shoot him in the leg or both arms , taze him , send the k9 to bite his ass , he didn't have to die.

  3. The Shelter resident lied, the police officer said drop the Knife approximately 19 times before he fired the deadly shots to this deranged homeless man. Shooting is justified, if someone especially the Police are telling you to drop a deadly weapon, that many times the killing is justified case closed. Homeless guy was wasting space anyway.
