NEW YORK (AP) - Dramatic video shows two New York City police officers shooting a man suspected in a series of violent attacks, including a fatal stabbing.

The footage shows suspect James Patrick Dillon walking toward two police officers who order him to drop a knife. One of the officers draws his revolver as Dillon continues toward the officers who open fire. Dillon falls back and an officer turns him over and cuffs him. He’s listed in critical condition.

The violence began earlier Sunday when Police say Dillon slashed a woman in the face, fatally stabbed a store owner and set a homeless man on fire. Information on his lawyer wasn’t available.

The video was posted on the New York Post (https://nyp.st/1QxE89f) website Monday. It was captured by a witness watching from his window.
