    Police shot and killed a man with a knife Monday night after responding to a call about a pair of security guards being stabbed at a halfway house in the Bronx, according to the NYPD.

    NYPD Chief of Patrol Terence Monahan said two officers asked the man to drop his 4-inch steak knife more than 20 times as they stood in the lobby of the Hughes House Monday evening and opened fire when the man started to step toward them. 

    The man, identified by law enforcement sources close to the investigation as Cornell Lockhart, was hit multiple times and was pronounced dead at St. Barnabas Hospital. 

    Monahan said before officers got on scene, the man stabbed two female security guards. One had been stabbed in her arm, while the other had stab wounds to her chest and arms. Both women are in serious but stable condition at St. Barnabas Hospital.

    Both officers who shot the man had body cameras and were uninjured, according to Monahan. The footage will be reviewed. 

    Charlton Lucas, a resident at the facility, said he could hear the gunshots.

    "I was about to come off the elevator and I heard multiple shots," he said. "I feared for my safety. I got really nervous."

    The housing facility is the same one where a 70-year-old tenant was stabbed by a 46-year-old fellow resident over a loan in 2016, according to the Daily News. The 70-year-old died from his injuries

    The Hughes House is a facility run by Urban Pathways, a nonprofit that provides permanent and temporary housing for the homeless, safe havens for the mentally ill, career development programs and medical and rehabilitation services. 

    It's not clear if the suspect was a tenant at the Hughes House, or if he had any prior run-ins with the police.
