On Thursday, New York City's police department said officers fatally shot a mentally ill black man who was carrying a pipe on a Brooklyn street corner on Wednesday after mistaking the metal rod for a gun. The NYPD said they received three separate 911 calls describing a black man wearing a brown jacket and pointing "a silver firearm" at people. When police encountered the man, "The suspect then took a two-handed shooting stance and pointed an object at the approaching officers." Officers then immediately shot the man, where he later died at a local hospital.
