NEW YORK — Bronx cops rescued a woman and her three children from her knife-wielding husband Sunday before shooting the disturbed man to death when he lunged at two officers with the knife, police said.

Police fired six shots at Mauricio Jacques, 35, after two blasts of a Taser stun gun and rubber bullets failed to stop him.

The dramatic confrontation unfolded after Jacques' wife, Anna Martinez, 33, frantically called 911 twice just before 10a.m., saying her drunk and deranged husband was threatening to kill her, their 11-year-old daughter and their two sons, ages 9 and 5.
