Police shot and killed a man in Prospect Heights on Wednesday morning, about six hours after another man was shot and killed by an officer in Brooklyn, the NYPD said.

The man, identified as 18-year-old Joshua Martino, of Brooklyn, had been firing shots into a lounge moments before police pursued and then confronted him around 3:40 a.m., NYPD Chief Terrence Monahan said at a press briefing.

Two officers shot Martino twice in the torso after he turned towards them with a .38 caliber revolver in his hand, Monahan said. The man never fired and no officers were injured. 

Martino was taken to the hospital in cardiac arrest and pronounced dead sometime before 4:30 a.m.
