Fatal Miami Beach Police Shooting Is Caught on Grisly Video.

A 24-year-old New York woman was arrested after stabbing another woman during a fight at the popular Art Basel show in Miami, prompting at least one patron to think he was watching performance art. Police officers responding to a report of a robbery in Miami Beach on Saturday fatally shot a shirtless man during a standoff that was captured on cellphone video.A police officer shot and killed an alleged bank robber on a Miami Beach street on Saturday after feeling threatened with a razor, officials said, in an incident some bystanders caught on video and that was posted on Instagram. The crazed attacker, later identified as New Yorker Siyuan Zhao, slashed and stabbed her victim in the arms and neck with an X-Acto knife Friday night during an exhibiton at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the Miami Herald reported.

In attempting to rob a Bank of America at about 10:30 a.m., the man presented a note saying he had a bomb, but he left without any money and went to a barbershop a block away, Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates told reporters. “He was challenged by the officers in the street,” Oates said, “At some point during that confrontation he did raise his hand with a straight edge razor in it. The pair had gotten into a fight after the victim confronted Zhao about following her around the celebrity-studded art show and bumping into her several times, the report states. Others believed the police tape cordoning off an area of the convention center was part of an art installation and had no idea the attack had taken place.

One officer fired, we believe two shots.” The Instagram video, apparently taken from across the street, showed the officer pointing a rifle directly at the man’s chest. Event organizers had ramped up security at this year’s event in wake of last week’s mass shooting in California and called the bizarre attack “an isolated incident that was immediately secured.” Gregg Hill, a sculptor visiting from New York, told the Herald he saw the victim being wheeled out on a gurney but never suspected she was the victim of a violent act. “I never would have thought there would be a stabbing at Art Basel.

High-profile killings of black men at the hands of mainly white law enforcement officers in U.S. cities have fueled demonstrations for some two years, stoking a national debate on race relations and police tactics. Event photographer Marcellus Johnson, 41, of Miami filmed some of the confrontation on his cell phone and said many other bystanders were doing the same.
