The New York Police Department launched a manhunt for Maksim Gelman, saying he had stabbed Aleksandr Kuznetsov "numerous" times at around 5 a.m. Friday. Police found the 54-year-old's body inside his home in Brooklyn's Sheepshead Bay neighborhood after receiving a 911 call reporting a stabbing at that address.
About 11 hours later, police received another 911 call reporting a stabbing just a few blocks away. When they arrived, police discovered the bodies of Gelman's girlfriend and her mother, said police, who declined to release the victims' names.
Police say Gelman escaped in a Lexus he had stolen earlier that day, drove a few blocks north before carjacking and stabbing another driver, then hitting a pedestrian as he escaped. The pedestrian was hospitalized in critical condition. The driver is stable.
