  • No officers were injured in the shooting detectives said after police opened fire in the Bronx and struck a man

A suspect has died following a police-involved shooting early Tuesday morning in the Bronx. The uniformed officers ordered the subject to drop weapon and he refused to comply.

Authorities said the 38-year-old man was shot just after 4:15 a.m., according to WABC.

No officers were injured in the shooting.

The officers went into a rear bedroom where the man confronted them with a knife that had a 2-foot long blade. He was not the person officials were looking for in the search warrant, Monahan said on scene, but the person who they did have information on was detained outside and taken into custody for questioning.

In line with new procedures for using force, the officers immediately called for an ambulance for the victim, Chief Monahan said, and administered medical aid.

Officials said the man was taken to an area hospital, but he ended up dying. It is now unclear if the man shot was the subject of the search warrant.

One other occupant of the apartment, an elderly male, was uninjured but was removed to the hospital for observation. No police officers were injured.

The subject's weapon was recovered at the scene.
