    Police say an officer on Long Island shot and killed a bat-wielding man during a road rage incident that turned into abject mayhem in Nassau County Monday, authorities say.

    Nassau County police say it happened after the suspect got out of his car at about 10:30 a.m. in Great Neck and smashed the windows of two vehicles. One of the drivers confronted the suspect and was struck in the head.

    Police say the patrol officer used a stun gun on the suspect after ordering him to drop the bat. They say the man continued to threaten the officer and struck a civilian in the head who tried to help.

    Police say the officer then fired two shots, killing the unidentified suspect. No police officers were hurt.
