An elderly man who walks with the aid of a Cane was attacked while he was onboard a B46 bus that was northbound on Utica Avenue at Fulton Street in Brooklyn at about 9:10AM on Tuesday.
The attacker, described by witnesses as a much younger man at least six feet tall, was able to flee the bus, making his escape by possibly boarding yet another bus at the busy intersection, according to witnesses.
The victim suffered a head wound in the attack and his clothing was visibly covered with blood.
Initial reports indicated the victim was stabbed, but it remains unclear at this time what was actually used to inflict the wound.
The attacker is still on the lam and is actively being sought by Cops.
A 911 call at 4:43PM today, reporting that two men were shooting at each other, sent cops rushing to the intersection of Utica Avenue and Montgomery Street in Brooklyn.
After arriving on the scene, one Police Officer then discharged his gun at a male suspect, identified by people on the scene as a mentally challenged, Church going man in his forties whose first name is Sahim.
The man was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. According to the NYPD, the Officer was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Preliminary information from the NYPD indicates that a gun was not recovered at the scene.
