All Empire State shooting victims wounded by police gunfire
CNN: The nine pedestrians wounded Friday morning in the shooting outside of the Empire State Building were all wounded by New York police gunfire. A gun battle began as police shot at a man holding a .45 caliber pistol who had just killed a former co-worker.
Police say an investigation is underway. One officer shot nine rounds, while another shot 7.
“Police identified the gunman as Jeffrey Johnson, 58, who was apparently laid off from his job as a designer of women’s accessories at Hazan Import Co. last year.”
