( 4UMF NEWS ) Two Dead In Shoot Out At Empire State Building:
Police say two people, including the gunman, are dead after at least four people were shot outside the Empire State Building Friday morning — and as many as 10 taken to area hospitals.
A law-enforcement official said the shooting did not appear to be terror-related, and may have been the actions of a disgruntled employee who may work inside the building.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the gunman’s wound was self-inflicted or if the suspect was shot by police.
Authorities said emergency personnel received a call about the shooting at Fifth Avenue and 34th Street just after 9 a.m. and that units were on the scene within minutes. The FBI is also on the scene.
The circumstances of the shooting weren’t immediately clear.
At least one person was seen being taken away in a stretcher.
Anyone traveling in the area is advised to expect road closures and detours.
