Bystanders at the Empire State Building Were Hit by Police Bullets

Maybe we need gun control after all, for police


All of the bystanders shot outside the Empire State building Friday were apparently hit with police bullets, law enforcement sources told DNAinfo New York.

Two officers from the 42nd Precinct, on Midtown foot posts after an anti-terrorism exercise, sprayed Fifth avenue with a fusillade of 16 shots after Jeffrey Johnson, who had killed his former boss around the corner, reached into his satchel and pulled out a .45 caliber pistol, the sources said.
