Police Spokesman John Delaney tells WHYN NEWS Nicholas Montel attacked two police officers with what is being described as a hatchet. Police were called to 74 Irvington Street in the city's Forest Park section for a call of a suicidal man. When they arrived police say they heard a woman screaming and Montel swinging the weapon. When Montel approached officers he was shot. Also under arrest is a 25 year old woman Erica Cartagena on charges that she interfered with a police investigation.
