Four dead after New York killing spree

A man is suspected of fatally stabbing his stepfather, ex-girlfriend and her mother before running over a pedestrian in a 28-hour rampage in New York City, police said.

The man, believed to be Ukrainian-born Maksim Gelman, 23, was armed with five knives when he was arrested.

Gelman is also suspected of carrying out two carjackings which left one man, Sheldon Pottinger, with cuts to his hands.

Four other people were also knifed but survived the attacks.
