Police have identified the man fatally shot by officers after he allegedly stabbed two security guards at a Bronx halfway house.

Cornell Lockhart, left, is accused of using this knife to stab two women in the Bronx on November 13, 2017.

Police say two officers were responding to a report of a stabbing at the home Monday night when they encountered the man in the lobby armed with a knife. NYPD officials say security video shows the officers telling the suspect to drop his knife more than 20 times.

The suspect, who'd once lived there, jumped over a counter to attack the two women, a source said. The unidentified man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police say he approached still holding the knife, a four-inch steak knife, and that's when both officers opened fire, shooting the suspect several times.
