One woman has been killed and another critically injured Saturday morning by a suspected ax murderer inside Brooklyn apartment.

The woman, 21, hailed an Uber to 811 Flushing Ave, a building within New York City Housing Authority’s Bushwick Houses, and asked to be taken to a hospital shortly before 1:30 a.m., police sources said.

The driver noticed she was bleeding heavily and called 911.

When medics arrived, she told them there was a dead body in her eighth-floor apartment and her child was also inside, the sources said.



Police searched the home and found an unidentified woman lying on the living room floor — partially decapitated, with her fingers severed and stab wounds throughout her head and body, police sources said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives believe the woman who was killed, who was in her 20s, does not live at the apartment and was just visiting when the attack occurred, sources said.

The 4-year-old girl, the 21-year-old woman’s daughter, was in a back bedroom, unharmed, the sources said.




Investigators later found what they believe to be the murder weapon — an ax — inside a trash compactor in the building, the sources said.

The woman was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center in critical but stable condition. Her daughter was taken to Woodhull Medical Center for evaluation, police said.

Hours later, crime scene investigators could be seen inside the closed-off building dusting for fingerprints and examining the lobby. An unrecognizable piece of evidence, identified as evidence item number “4,” was spotted near the front door of the location.

Police are still working to determine who is responsible for the carnage.
