Police shot dead a mentally-disturbed Harlem man last year because one cop mistakenly thought the man had stabbed him, when in reality the cop was tasered by a fellow officer, an amended lawsuit will claim.
The cop yelled, "He's stabbing me, shoot him," moments before Mohamed Bah was gunned down, the revised lawsuit will allege, citing official reports on the Sept. 25, 2012 incident.
The shooting occurred in Bah's apartment after his mother phoned 911. She claims she wanted an ambulance for her son because he seemed depressed.
But the NYPD claims the officers opened fire because the mentally-ill Bah -- a cab driver, community college student and African immigrant --lunged at them with a knife.
