Transit Cop Stabbed In Eye Shoots, Kills Assailant

July 05, 2012  | 

An officer with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority shot and killed his attacker, who stabbed him in the eye on Wednesday at a Jamaica, Queens, transit station.

Officer John Barnett, 45, underwent more than four hours of surgery at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center after the assault. After the surgery, a doctor said the knife "almost severed his eyeball in half," reports the New York Times.

The attack occurred shortly after 9:30 a.m. Officer Barnett was talking with a cabdriver, when Edjar Owens, 46, came toward him with a knife, saying "I'm going to kill you." Owens refused to comply with the officer's commands to drop the weapon.
