A man suspected of randomly attacking four people with a hammer in New York has been shot and arrested.
The New York Police Department said 30-year-old David Baril of the Bronx faces assault and weapon charges.
He remains in critical but stable condition after he was shot at least twice.
Surveillance video shows Mr Baril lunging at a police officer with a hammer yesterday, striking her at least three times. Her partner shot him.
Police say he struck four other people with a hammer on Monday.
Manhattan Chief of Detectives Bill Aubry says Mr Baril has a history of paranoia and schizophrenia and voluntarily left a mental institution in December.
