Blades vs bullets

Area cops were forced to open fire on an unhinged woman after she refused to drop a knife during a confrontation inside a Parkside Avenue apartment on April 26.

Cops responded to the home between Flatbush Avenue and Parkside Court at 6:44 pm after receiving a 911 call of an emotionally disturbed person.

Cops said that when they arrived, the woman threatened them with a knife.

They ordered her to drop her weapon, but she refused, officials said. They then doused the woman with pepper spray, but she wouldn’t give up the knife.

Cops saw no choice but to pull their weapons and open fire on the threatening woman, striking her in the torso.

Paramedics immediately rushed her to Kings County Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition after treatment.

Where: 225 Parkside Avenue
