10 People Shot Outside Empire State Building, 2 Including Gunman Killed

Aug 24, 2012
Ten people were shot outside the Empire State Building, leaving two dead, including the gunman, New York City officials said.

The New York Daily News interviews a construction worker who witnessed the shooting. The worker says the gunman was dressed in a gray suit and was carrying briefcase, and shot his first victim in the head: Construction worker Chris Ogden was working on a scaffold above the building's 33rd St. entrance when he watched in disbelief as the gunman — in a suit and carrying a briefcase — opened fire. "He shot the guy in the head," said Ogden, 23. "The guy went down. He took a second shot when he was down." The well-dressed shooter then "walked down the block, like nothing was happening, real casual," Ogden said. "We were screaming from the top, 'It's the guy in the grey suit!'"
A witness told CNN she saw a man lying in the middle of the street surrounded by police.
A fire department spokesman says it received a call about the shooting just after 9 a.m. Friday and that emergency units were on the scene within minutes.

Aliyah Imam tells Fox 5 News that she was standing at a red light when a woman standing next to her fell to the ground. She says the woman was hit in the hip. She says the gunman was "shooting indiscriminately at people."

Various local media reports put the number killed in the shooting at two or three.

The New York Post is reporting that three total have died in the shooting at the Empire State Building, including the gunman. The Post reports that one fatality was a coworker of the gunman and one was a "bystander."
Local ABC News and Reuters report that two have died, including the gunman.
The shooting occurred at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue

DEMAND THE TRUTH!

"It was the poverty caused by the bad influence of the
 English Bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and...the Revolutionary War."
– Benjamin Franklin

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."

Patrick Henry
