Man shot dead by police after threatening mother with tool

A man was fatally shot by police in Queens Saturday morning after he menaced his mother with a screwdriver, officials said.

Police responded to a home at Westgate and Thurston Streets in Springfield Gardens just after 3 a.m., where a woman was screaming, cops said. The officers found a 28-year-old man threatening his mother with the tool in a small stairwell.

Cops told him to drop the screwdriver – and he refused, prompting them to deploy a Taser. The Taser did not hit the man, and he continued to hold the screwdriver, cops said.

Then, two officers each discharged one round, hitting the man in the shoulder and the leg, according to police.

He was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he later died.

The officers were taken to Long Island Jewish Hospital for ringing in their ears.
