Police were searching for a Brooklyn man they say stabbed his stepfather to death inside his Sheepshead Bay home, when news of two females stabbed was sent out by the police dispatcher.

According authorities, 23-year-old Maksim Gelman stabbed his girlfriend and her mother Friday afternoon, after allegedly stabbing his stepfather to death hours earlier. Gelman went to his girlfriend's house at 2466 East 24 Street around 4:20 p.m., where he stabbed his girlfriend and her mother, killing both of them, police said.

He then ran out into the street where he stabbed and carjacked a man driving a 1995 Green Pontiac Benneville near E. 24th St. and Ave. U, according to police. As he sped away from the scene, he slammed into a woman who was walking near the intersection of Ave. R and Ocean Ave., authorities said.

The Pontiac has since been discovered abandoned near the train tracks at E. 15th St.

Both the carjacking victim and the pedestrian are reportedly in stable condition.

Officers initially received a call of a stabbing around 5 a.m., and responding officers discovered 54-year-old Aleksandr Kuznetsov brutally stabbed several times in an E. 27th St. condo.

An NYPD manhunt for Gelman is underway, and anyone with knowledge of Gelman's whereabouts is urged to call New York City Police Department's anonymous Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
