Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Man Goes on Rampage, Killing Four Relatives in New York City Home

In a shocking incident that has left the community in Far Rockaway, Queens, in shock, a man went on a rampage, killing four of his relatives, including two children, in their New York City home early on Sunday. The suspect, identified as Courtney Gordon, 38, then proceeded to set the building on fire and attacked two police officers with a knife before one of them fatally shot him.

The horrifying incident unfolded around 5:10 a.m. when a young female caller dialed 911, stating that her cousin was killing her family. Police quickly responded to the call and arrived at the scene, where they encountered a man leaving the area with luggage. Within seconds, the man pulled out a knife and launched a vicious attack on the officers.

One of the officers sustained stab wounds to his neck and chest, while the other was slashed in the head. Despite their injuries, one of the officers managed to shoot the assailant, putting an end to the violence. Both officers are expected to recover from their injuries.

Tragically, when authorities were finally able to enter the home, they discovered three more victims who had been fatally stabbed. The victims included a 12-year-old boy, a 44-year-old woman, and a man in his 30s. Another woman, 61, was found gravely injured and is currently in critical condition.

The motive behind the rampage remains unknown, and the identities of the victims have not yet been disclosed. According to police, Gordon was visiting the family from his home in the Bronx.

This devastating incident comes just a week after another knife rampage in the Bronx, where a college student, who claimed to be hearing voices, killed his father, his 5-year-old half-brother, and the little boy’s mother.

Authorities are still investigating the circumstances surrounding both attacks and are working to determine if there are any connections between the two incidents.

As the community mourns the loss of their loved ones and grapples with the shock of these tragedies, local leaders and law enforcement are coming together to provide support and ensure the safety of residents. The bravery and quick response of the police officers involved in Sunday’s incident have been commended, with the head of the New York Police Department’s police union praising their skill and courage in the face of such a dangerous situation.
