GOSHEN, New York — A police sergeant says an upstate New York man told her a fugitive rape suspect lunged at him before he shot the man to death.

David Carlson is accused of firing his shotgun twice at Norris Acosta-Sanchez in October 2013 as they walked along the road where Carlson lives near the Pennsylvania border.

A new hearing on the admissibility of Carlson's statements began last week in Orange County.

The Times Herald-Record reports (http://bit.ly/1Pd4eAM ) that Deerpark police Sgt. Elizabeth Sullivan testified on Monday in Goshen. She says the Deerpark man was in an ambulance following the shooting when he told her Acosta-Sanchez had lunged at him before he fired.

Carlson has said he was escorting Acosta-Sanchez at gunpoint so a neighbor could call police.
