NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say a man walked up to another man and said “Happy Halloween” before stabbing him, before he was fatally shot by the stabbing victim’s cousin.

The victims cousin, a 24-year-old Hamden man, was waiting in a nearby car and heard a commotion, so got out and was also stabbed. But he pulled out a gun and shot the assailant in the chest.

The suspect said "Happy Halloween" and stabbed the victim. The victim's cousin was waiting for him in a car when he noticed the commotion. When the cousin exited the car and approached the suspect, he also was stabbed by the person. The cousin pulled out his pistol, which he lawfully owns, and shot the suspect in the chest. Police are calling the shooting "self-defense".
