Cops shot and killed a knife-wielding homeless shelter resident after he stabbed two security guards.

According to the NYPD, police officers arrived at Urban Pathways on Monday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. as the suspect Cornell Lockhart, 68, was assaulting the two female security guards with a knife.

Lockhart who had lived there for 11 years, jumped over a counter to attack the two women, 48 and 29, according to the report.

Responding police officers ordered Lockhart to drop his weapon at least 20 times, but the suspect refused to comply, police said.

Police said Lockhart instead stepped towards the officers while holding a four-inch long kitchen knife in his right hand resulting in police shooting him multiple times.

One woman was stabbed in the chest and was rushed to surgery while the other was stabbed in her arm. Both are expected to recover.
