Police on Long Island say a man was shot to death after he charged officers with a 12-inch knife.

It was the second shooting in two days involving Nassau County police. The first man survived.

Police did not identify the man shot early Tuesday outside a home in Point Lookout. Marie Doerbecker told Newsday that he was her son, 23-year-old Kurt Doerbecker.

According to Newsday, a web site for Queens College baseball says Doerbecker was a psychology major who played for the team in 2010.

His player bio says he was all-conference in 2004, all-county in 2005 and all-division in 2006 while playing for Long Beach High School.

On Monday, police wounded Brandon Pasker of Hempstead. They alleged he stole a patrol car and led officers on a high-speed chase that ended in Oyster Bay.
