    What the hell is going on with all these shootings? Is there something in the water...?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Disgruntled employee. Shot and killed ex co-worker, then was shot and killed by police when he pulled his gun on them. Police may have shot the bystanders.

    Im sure that some were hit by the killer himself during the crossfire with police, but 9 wounded is a damn high number if it was all the police.

    Johnson followed his former co-worker down 33rd Street and shot him outside of Legends Bar, according to the New York Post. It is unclear if he fired into a crowd of pedestrians outside of the Empire State Building, or if pedestrians were caught in crossfire, reported the New York Daily News.
    A construction worker who witnessed the shooting followed the suspect and then alerted police who were posted nearby. As the officers approached Johnson, he pulled his gun and fired on the officers. They returned fire and killed him, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.
    None of the other people who were shot were seriously wounded and they are all expected to recover. Some of those wounded may have been hit by police gunfire, Bloomberg said.

    Not sure. Walked by there not long after it happened, so it's all word of mouth for me. Haven't had the chance to check the news (FH is the first place I check when I get on a computer ). Helicopters and cops everywhere. Street cordoned off for blocks. Never a cool thing to see, especially around a landmark like the ESB.

    Just watched the video of it and it's hard to place any blame on them. They were approaching him when he came around a tree, pulled his gun, and started firing. They reacted and started firing back. Can't imagine being in their place.

    Of course, the city is about to face a ton of lawsuits. They certainly deserve the money over all the schools being closed here.
