Empire State Shooting Victim ID'd

NEW YORK - The man allegedly shot and killed by laid-off women's accessories designer Jeffrey Johnson near the Empire State building on Friday has been identified as Steven Ercolino, 41, reports the Associated Press.

A man who answered the phone at the home of Ercolino's parents in the city's suburbs says "he was a good son."

Police haven't released Ercolino's name, but a law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity confirmed his identity.
