Police: Man Stabs Another Inside Synagogue, Then Lunges at Officer

A man stabbed a student at a Brooklyn synagogue early Tuesday morning before he was fatally shot by an officer he lunged at, police said.

The man walked into the Chabad Lubavitch World Headquarters around 1 a.m., where students had been up late studying.

The victim, an Israeli named Levi Rosenblatt, was stabbed in the neck but his injuries aren't life threatening, Chabad Lubavitch said.

The attacker is believed to be homeless, CNN affiliate WABC said. It's not clear why he stabbed the 23-year-old student.
