VIDEO: NYC Hatchet Attacker Might Have Terrorism Ties

One day after an attack in Canada, a man suspected of terror ties attacked two New York City police officers with a hatchet.

New surveillance video shows the suspect about to launch the hatchet attack in Jamaica, Queens. A freelance photographer had just asked four police officers to pose for a photo when a man pulled a hatchet from his bag, hitting one officer in the arm and another in the head.

Police then opened fire, killing the man and wounding a woman nearby with errant gunfire.

According to Fox News, the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force is on the scene. Police also told Fox News that the suspect's Facebook page has concerning content.

The NYPD has issued a patrol bulletin alerting cops to be in a state of heightened awareness. There are also reports that police are conducting a large-scale operation near the site of the attack.
