AGENCE FRANCE PRESSE
NEW YORK: A disgruntled former worker at a Manhattan women's apparel shop shot a former co-worker outside the Empire State Building before being killed by police on Friday. In total, two people were killed and nine had non-life threatening wounds in the horrific, but brief shooting, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told a news conference. The FBI quickly ruled out terrorism. The shooter was identified as ‘disgruntled former worker’ Jeffrey Johnson, 53, and his victim was aged 41, Kelly said. He added that the man used a .45 caliber handgun with a magazine capacity of eight rounds and shot his former colleague at Hazan Imports in the head, striking him three times. The shooter put his gun in a bag and tried to flee but was confronted by two police officers.
