At least one person killed in shooting near Empire State Building

At least one person killed in shooting near Empire State Building amid Manhattan morning rush



A suspect was shot and killed by police and four other people were wounded when gunfire erupted Friday morning outside the Empire State Building, cops said.

Details were sketchy, but the shooting started shortly after 9 a.m. on the crowded rush hour sidewalks outside the iconic midtown skyscraper.

A man wanted by police was fatally shot, while four other people were injured before the gunfire stopped. It was unclear if the wounded victims were linked to the dead suspect or innocent bystanders, police said.

Cops were investigating what ignited the shootout on a sunny Manhattan morning at 34th St. and Fifth Ave. — just north of the building’s East Side entrance.

This is scary. I really hope all of the injured people will be okay.
