Police say they observed Kennedy, 51, smoking marijuana on 44th Street and Seventh Avenue Saturday afternoon and that he became agitated when officers approached him. Kennedy then pulled out an 11-inch knife and raised it over his head, officers said. Officers ordered him to drop the weapon, but he refused, police said. As Kennedy backed down Seventh Avenue, police pepper sprayed him six times to try and disarm him, but he continued to threaten officers with the knife, officials said. Police said that as Kennedy neared the corner of 37th Street, he lunged at officers, forcing them to shoot him. Two officers fired a total of 12 shots, striking Kennedy in the chest, groin, left arm and left calf.
