A KNIFEMAN who stabbed two people was shot dead in Germany hours after an axe-wielding maniac was gunned by cops in the Netherlands.
Earlier today, a 26-year-old Syrian man was shot by Dutch police shot after following reports he was waving an axe from a Rotterdam balcony. After cops reportedly entered the property where he lived with his dad, he lashed out at officers.
Man's best friend likely took most of the damage:
A police dog, which accompanied the arrest team, later died of its injuries.
