Decatur, Illinois — On March 30, 2023, The Decatur Police Department was called to the 400 block of E. Orchard just before 4am this morning on a domestic violence call indicating that the adult male and female residents were involved in a fight and that the male suspect in this case had threatened a juvenile with a knife. The adult male suspect is identified as 43-year-old Steven Hirstein. The female is 34-year-old and is the mother of the juvenile. In addition, prior to officers arriving at the incident location, they were made aware that Hirstein was wanted for Aggravated Domestic Battery and Domestic Battery for previous incidents. Multiple officers arrived on scene to handle this incident.
As officers made contact, they spoke to the female and worked to locate the suspect, discovering that the female had stab and slash wounds on her body. Officers eventually located Hirstein in a bathroom, and believed he may have been armed with a knife. The officers gave multiple commands for Hirstein to show them his hands and to come out of the bathroom. As the officers tried to get Hirstein to surrender, he burst through a falling bathroom door and throws a knife at the cops with his right hand while clutching another ready in his left. The thrown knife missed the cops clustered near the bathroom. Two Decatur Police Officers discharged their firearms at Hirstein, striking him multiple times. Hirstein immediately fell to the ground and was secured. First aid was provided to Hirstein and he was subsequently transported to DMH to be treated for his injuries.
The female victim was also transported to DMH for treatment for her injuries. Hirstein was shot in both his hands and in his right arm, just above the elbow. His injuries are non-life threatening. He is currently being treated at DMH and is in stable condition. The female victim was also transported to DMH where she was found to have multiple stab wounds to the back, arm and hip, and a cut on her chest. Her injuries were not serious, and she was released from the hospital later that morning. Hirstein was released from the hospital and was booked in the Macon County jail on charges of Attempted Murder, Aggravated Domestic Battery, and Aggravated Assault. On April 3, 2023, a Macon County judge set the bond for Hirstein at $1,085,000.

Looks like he won't be throwing knives anymore "Hirstein was shot in both his hands and in his right arm, just above the elbow."
Everyone thinks there John Wick til they ain’t….
Think he 💩'ed himself but in any case, chalk another one up for Knife vs. Gun , knife fail..
0:20 "Hey Koolaid!"
is that door made of toilet paper?
Bro thought this was COD 💀
They shot him while he was unarmed.
Alright these guys need to get back to the firing range and work on their accuracy. Center mass not arms boys.
Sorry to hear this scumbag made it out alive.
But, but it works in the John Wick films…..aarrggg….(fart)
Sounds like the cop in the fromt has some allergies
fighting in ukraine war is safer than being a police in america
Holy crap, you never know what can come at you.
Trow him out the window to the waiting meat wagon he swiss cheese.
Dude tried to mix the Kool-Aid Man and Bruce Lee, but failed miserably.
Pitiful how much crap the cops have to deal with from the children of devil!
well he came out..
Ahhh Decatur, another of illinois’ finest chicago waste runoff cities
Knife to meet you.
Yeah, the people who work harder for their low wages than their co workers are going to come up Milhouse any day now.
Just another American, this time an employer, deluding himself into a better future (for himself).
Cop on the left shaking like a leaf before running away.
I guess he will sue them now for damaging his knife throwing hand.
This is why I don't want an apartment in the city.
He lived? Darn it.
ANOTHER FOOL RESISTING THE LAW AND OUR POLICE. GET THEM ALL, WE DON'T NEED THEM IN OUR SOCIETY.
Don't bring a knife to a gunfight 🔫
Almost a perfect ending.
I've trained throwing knives, am fairly proficient in it, and have several sets of professional throwing knives. It would never cross my mind to throw a knife at any one of many police officers with guns drawn on me. Golly, I guess I'm just not as good at it as I thought
