Student stabbed at NY synagogue, perpetrator shot dead by police

A terrible attack occurred at one of the Chabad movement's synagogues in NYC, and the man who committed the crime was finally gunned down by police:
The police shooting of a stabbing suspect at the Brooklyn headquarters of an Orthodox Jewish sect early this morning "looks like it was justified," New York Police Commissioner William Bratton said.

An officer with seven years on the force shot and killed Calvin Peters, 49, after police "gave verbal commands for the male to drop the knife," Bratton said.

The incident happened about 1:45 a.m. inside the headquarters of Chabad-Lubavitch. Peters walked into the facility asking for a book, police said. He then stabbed a 22-year-old student from Israel in the side of the head with a nine-inch knife, they added.

Witnesses said the man was repeating, "Kill all Jews," as he stabbed the student, according to an emailed statement from Rabbi Motti Seligson of Chabad-Lubavitch -- though Bratton later said reports the suspect uttered an anti-Semitic phrase were unverified.

When officers arrived, they ordered Peters to drop the knife, police said. He placed it on a table, but then picked it up and walked toward some of the officers, officials added.

Cell phone video captured the incident. It showed officers yelling at a man and captured the sound of the single gunshot.

Peters was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he died. The police said stabbing victim also was taken to the hospital and was listed in stable condition.
This does not appear to be Islam-linked, but it's still very disturbing. The student is lucky to be okay.
