NYPD cops fatally shoot man at center for mentally ill

Bodycam footage released by the NYPD on Wednesday shows a suspect begging Bronx cops to shoot him dead as they attempt to get him to drop a knife.

“Shoot me!” Cornell Lockart says repeatedly. “Shoot me!”

Officers wound up granting the 67-year-old’s wish — firing a total of nine shots and mortally wounding him during the Nov. 13 incident, according to police.

The cops confronted Lockart at around 7:30 p.m. that night inside a hallway at 1974 Hughes Ave after receiving reports of a stabbing inside the building, which serves as a homeless shelter.

When they arrived, officers found two female security guards with knife wounds and Lockart allegedly holding a blade. Officials said Tuesday that security footage from inside the building shows the incident go down.
