Seems like a daily thing, now. Getting to be a gallows humor thing....http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/us-news-blog/2012/aug/24/empire-state-building-live-coverage
The Police Department has changed its report of the sexes of the nine bystanders who were shot, now saying that four were women and five were men (at his press conference Kelly incorrectly said two women, seven men).
Summary of latest developments
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has concluded his press conference outside the Empire State Building. To recap:
• The gunman, Jeffrey Johnson, 53, confronted the victim, a 41-year-old former coworker, on a sidewalk and shot him dead, striking him three times. The gunman concealed his .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun in a black bag and walked away from the scene, walking about two blocks.
• A construction worker followed the gunman and alerted officers near the Empire State Building. When two police officers confronted Johnson, he drew the gun and fired on them. The officers shot him dead.
• The mayor said some of the nine others wounded may have been shot by police. Seven men and two women are in hospital: none has life-threatening injuries, the mayor said. Bloomberg also said police have video of the confrontation between police and Johnson.
• The suspect, Johnson, had worked for about six years as a women's clothing designer at Hazan Imports. Johnson lost his job at the business, near the Empire State Building, about a year ago. While the shooting took place near the landmark, it was not otherwise connected to the incident.
