Hubby DOA In Violent Domestic Dispute
A domestic dispute turned deadly on May 10 when police shot a knife-wielding man who had stabbed his wife then himself at their Oakland Gardens home.
Police said the violence erupted at 8:30 p.m. on May 10, when cops were called to break up a violent dispute at the home at 222nd Place in Oakland Gardens, where they found the 50-year-old homeowner brandishing a knife.
Police found the man and his 51-year-old wife bleeding from knife wounds, standing next to each other in front of the home. The man was waving a blood-soaked knife when the cops arrived at the scene, police sources said.
The woman, bleeding from wounds to the neck and abdomen was crying, “I’m going to die. I’m going to die,” the sources said.
Cops ordered the man to drop the knife and when he refused to comply, they shot him twice in the torso.
The husband and wife were taken to North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, where the man was pronounced dead on arrival. The woman remains in critical condition at North Shore Hospital.
Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy by the city medical examiner to determine the exact cause of death of the husband. It was not initially clear if the man died from self-inflicted stab wounds to his throat, or as a result of shots fired by cops.
Investigators are trying to determine what caused the dispute.
