NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a man with a knife was shot and killed by police in Brooklyn during a dispute with another man who was fatally stabbed.

Police say a 35-year-old woman and two children inside the Midwood apartment were not harmed during Monday night’s incident.

They say one of the men was the woman’s current boyfriend, the other was her ex.

Police say officers arriving at the scene encountered a 47-year-old man holding a knife.

They say the second man confronted the knife-wielding suspect, who was then shot by police after he refused orders to drop the knife. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The second man, who was 51, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say the children, ages 6 and 7, were found in another room.
