|Heavily-armed police guarding the scene of the attack|
His name was was Akram Joudeh, and he was a resident of Queens, although he is reportedly originally from Jordan.
He has fifteen previous arrests, including one for carrying knives near a synagogue.
Apparently, he had been living in his car.
Joudeh became upset when he saw that the car had been booted, and so tried to pry it off. When confronted by police, he did what any self-respecting Islamist would do in such a situation - take out a meat cleaver, wave it menacingly and then start running down a crowded street.
Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.
Even if you're homeless.
A policeman was apparently slashed in the face when attempting to subdue him, and two other officers suffered minor injuries. Joudeh was also shot multiple times. I counted at least twelve shots in the video (there were actually eighteen). "Holy Sh**!" exclaims someone off camera, "Wow!"
The policeman will be okay, though he now has a six-inch gash on his jaw.
Amazingly, Joudeh himself is said to be in critical but stable condition, even after so many shots. One photograph showed him being cuffed while lying in a large pool of what I assume was his own blood.
