Earlier today a man with an axe approached a group of NYPD officers and, in an unprovoked attack, struck two of them with the axe before succumbing to a hail of bullets from the officers.
The hatchet-wielding man who attacked four YPD officers earlier today and was then shot dead by police may have had ties to ISIS, sources told Vocativ.                                                                                               Law-enforcement sources we spoke with identified Zale Thompson as the armed man who charged at a group of NYPD uniformed police assembled on a street corner in Jamaica, Queens, at around 2 p.m. today. The 32-year-old Muslim, who lived in Queens, struck one of the officers in the back of the head with his hatchet and gashed another on the arm, the police said.
