The suspect refused to comply with police commands – so he was shot dead.
One student, Levi Rosenblat, was injured in the stabbing.
Police shot and killed a man they say stabbed an Israeli student in the neck at a Jewish center in Brooklyn and then lunged at officers with a knife, according to the NYPD.
The man, 49, went into the Chabad-Lubavitch world headquarters in Crown Heights at about 1:40 a.m. Tuesday, allegedly yelled that he would kill Jewish people and then attacked Levi Rosenblat, police and a spokesman for the center say.
