Man Shot After Threatening Police

A person has been critically wounded after being shot by a police officer inside a building in Brooklyn, law enforcement sources say.

Witnesses and sources said the person lunged at the officer with scissors inside the second floor at 48 Fort Greene Pl. in Fort Greene. That's when the officer opened fire. It's not clear how many shots were fired.

The officer had gone into the building after being flagged down by a woman outside as he was driving past. 

The suspect  is believed to have had psychological issues. He was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he remains in critical condition. 

No further information was immediately available.
