Police are questioning a man armed with an axe after a woman was hacked to death and a second woman suffered stab wounds inside a Brooklyn apartment.

The carnage was discovered after the surviving victim hailed an Uber outside the Housing Authority's Bushwick Houses at 01:30 on Saturday and asked to be taken to a hospital. The possible suspect reportedly her ex-boyfriend.

The driver called 911 and police and medics responded. The woman told them someone was dead inside her apartment. She told authorities that her 4-year-old daughter was also there, unharmed.

Police found the dead woman nearly decapitated.

Officers are investigating whether a bloodied axe found in a trash compactor may have been the murder weapon.
