Police managed to safely subdue an emotionally disturbed man who walked into a police precinct in Brooklyn holding a knife.

NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan tweeted that the man walked into the New York City Police Department's 75th Precinct in Brooklyn at around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday and asked to be shot.

The man was quickly surrounded by police officers, one of whom used a stun gun on him, bringing him to the ground where officers subdued him.

"Though prepared for the worst, they delivered a safe outcome for everyone!" Monahan tweeted. "Well done!"

The man reportedly suffers from bipolar disorder and will not face charges.
