Just one day after the shocking terrorist attack in Canada, the U.S. was possibly targeted when a crazy Muslim man attacked an NYPD cop with a hatchet in a subway station.
The incident occurred at 2 pm when a freelance photographer asked four police officers to pose for a photo. Suddenly, a hatchet wielding man came out of nowhere and attacked the group “unprovoked and not speaking a word.”
The attacker hit one officer in the arm and the other in the head before the other cops opened fire on him, killing him instantly.
The injured officers are each in the hospital, with one in critical and the other in stable condition. Though the officer hit in the head is in critical condition, doctors expect him to recover from his wounds.
As of right now it is unclear what provoked the attack, and officials are currently investigating whether or not this was a terrorist attack. Police have been on high alert ever since the attack on Canada on Wednesday.
“This matter has not officially been deemed an act of terrorism as the initial investigation is still ongoing and details are being developed,” the FBI said in a statement.
