Ten people have been shot just outside the Empire State Building. Early reporting says that two people were killed, in addition to the shooter. Mayor Bloomberg is going to be someone to reckon with over this. The man is going to go ape.
Update [2012-8-24 10:58:43 by BooMan]: Now reporting is that there is only one fatality in addition to the shooter. Also, the weapon appears to have been a shotgun, and many of the injuries were to the legs and buttocks from ricocheting pellets.
Update [2012-8-24 11:49:35 by BooMan]: So, pretty much all the early reporting was wrong.
