Empire State shooting injures at least 8 in workplace dispute; gunman dead; Bloomberg can’t refrain from gun control politics; some victims may have been shot by NYPD
Another mass shooting this morning — this time in NYC, where gun control reigns. Please keep all the victims and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
Update: Bloomberg acknowledges that some of the victims may have been shot by NYPD, and closes his public statement by touting NYC public safety record and invoking leftist gun control politics: “…we are not immune to gun violence.”
Bloomberg says tape shows the perpetrator pulled out a gun and tried to shoot at police. Two officers opened fire and took him down. They ID’d him after a construction worker witnessed shooter murdering ex-co-worker and followed him, then notified NYPD.
Good news: City says bystanders who were shot will all survive.
Bloomberg’s last words: “There’s an awful lot of guns out there.”
