One woman was killed and another was critically injured on Saturday morning by a suspected ax murderer in a Brooklyn apartment.
Police responded to a call at the Bushwick Houses located at 811 Flushing Avenue shortly after 1.30 am.
When they arrived, officers learned a 21-year-old woman was transported by emergency responders to Elmhurst medical hospital. She remains there in a critical but stable condition, with lacerations to her head and all over her body, police said.
The 21-year-old called an Uber to 811 Flushing Ave, and got into the waiting car when the driver noticed she was bleeding heavily and called 911, The New York Post reported.
When medics arrived, she told them there was a dead body in her eighth-floor apartment and her child was also inside, sources told the Post.
Police found another woman in her twenties, unconscious and unresponsive in the living room, with multiple stab wounds and lacerations to both the head and body, police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
