Looks like it may be a Canadian style copycat attack.
JAMAICA, Queens (PIX11/CNN) - Four police officers and a woman were injured, and a hatchet-wielding man was fatally shot during a bloody altercation Thursday in Queens and now officials are looking to see if the attack was prompted by terrorism.
Four rookie police officers were working near 162nd Street and Jamaica Avenue when a freelance photographer asked them to pose for a photo in front of a Conway store. While they were posing, another man, described as a 32-year-old male, attacked without saying a word, Commissioner Bratton said at a press conference Thursday.
“The suspect was described as having charged at the officers,” Bratton said.
The man, who was wielding an 18-inch hatchet, was shot dead by officers.
Swinging an 18-inch metal hatchet, the man first hit a 24-year-old officer in the right arm — he was later taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.
The suspect kept swinging, striking a second officer in the back of the head, critically injuring the 25-year-old.
The other officers fired multiple shots, killed the suspect at the scene.

“Three rookie cops absolutely modest about what they did, thankfully all are in good condition,” Mayor De Blasio said.
The officer who sustained the wound to the back of the head was stable and alert at the hospital, where friends and family have gathered. He will be undergoing surgery for a “very serious injury to the back side of his head,” Commissioner Bratton said.
In just his first year on the job, the injured officer, who has not been identified, comes from a family of NYPD cops.
Commissioner Bratton said he doesn’t believe the photographer was working in any way with the hatchet-wielding man. Officers are now reviewing his photos from earlier in the day.
The attack happened in a bustling, commercial part of Queens. An Applebee’s restaurant, a Verizon store, several banks and a church are located nearby.
The miserable weather may have prevented additional injuries, as the sidewalks were emptier than usual thanks to a steady rain.
Authorities are looking to see if the unprovoked attack is tied to recent calls by radicals to attack military and police officers, law enforcement officials say.NES, NRA, GOAL, Comm2A, SAF, GOA

I am convinced the zombie apocalypse is, in reality, a fight against bearded muslims.

If it weren't for lax gun laws this tragedy could have been prevented. #momsdemand

He's been labelled an emotionally disturbed person, perhaps to deflect from his religious agenda.
Double whammy for NYC today - ebola and a terrorist attack.“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but where, I trust in God, it will always remain, in the hands of the people. ” – Tench Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

Hell, I'd be modest too, if I shot someone I wasn't aiming at.Just call me Carl.
I started with nothing, I still have most of it left.
Some people will bitch because the sun came up.

The officers had the luxury of having 2A rights in NYC. Most other New Yorkers aren't allowed that right, and would have had their heads butchered off by this cocksucker before anyone could stop him.
