An emotionally disturbed man brandishing a knife was shot and killed by police in his Brooklyn apartment, officials say.  

Police said 32-year-old Dwayne Jeune's mother called 911 and said he was acting erratically. When they arrived at the fifth-floor apartment on New York Avenue in Flatbush Gardens shortly after noon, she let them inside their home on the fifth floor. 

Chief of Patrol Terence Monahan said Jeune lunged at four officers with a "large carving knife." One officer fired a stun gun, hitting Jeune once in the arm and once in the chest, but Jeune was "able to fight through it and keep on moving forward," Monahan said.  

He then shoved an officer to the ground, police sources say, and was hovering over an officer with the knife when another second officer shot him in the chest.
