Sources inform us at NYCTalking that there was a shooting at 34th and 5th, near the Empire State building. Currently we have been informed that 7 people were shot, the shooter was shot and killed presumably by police officers. The building and area is currently locked down as the NYPD is not certain if there was more than one shooter or accomplice. At this time no motive is available.
Our prayers are with the victims of the shootings. Details will be shared as they become available.
*Update 10:41 am. News reports are coming in that 10 were shot and 2 were killed. Rumors are circulating that this was a disgruntled employee, while others state that he shot at a person he had a grievance with. I don’t understand however if that’s the case, how he hit 10 other people. At least the cops got him.*
