Sayed Faisal (2023)
On January 4, 2023, police received a call about a man with a large knife who had jumped out of an apartment window and was cutting himself with the knife and broken glass.
Cambridge Massachusetts Police Department officers located Faisal, who ran through the neighborhood. After several blocks, Faisal turned towards the officers and refused their commands to drop the knife. A less-lethal sponge weapon was used, but was ineffective. One officer shot Faisal with their service weapon. Officers rendered medical aid before paramedics arrived. Faisal died at the hospital.
The officer involved was placed on paid administrative leave.
