‘I Want To Kill The Jew’ Assailant Gunned Down
Police shot and killed a man who stabbed a student who was praying at a Brooklyn synagogue.
Cops repeatedly ordered the man, identified by police sources as Calvin Peters, 49, to put down the nine-inch blade he jammed into Levi Rosenblatt head during a furious exchange in the basement of the Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights at 1:45 a.m.
Peters put the knife down, but then picked it up again and charged the officers before he was shot in the stomach, cops and witnesses said.
“He was going towards the officer,” witness Yechi Hamlech, 19, said. “His eyes were bulging, he must have been on drugs.”
Startling video shows cops ordering Peters to put the knife down.
Peters initially complied, placing it on a table. Moments later, according to the video first posted by the Israeli news site 0404, he walks back and picks up the knife again.
“Drop the f—–g knife,” cops can be heard yelling repeatedly.
A single shot rang out, hitting Peters in the stomach, according to cops.
