There has been a shooting in the NYC council chambers, and at least two people have been wounded:
A man fired shots in City Hall this afternoon, hitting at least two people and sending city council members diving beneath their desks. Police officers swarmed into the building in search of the assailant.
Witnesses said the man appeared to be holding a silver handgun, which he was aiming at another individual in the balcony of the City Council chamber, which is on the second floor. Screams reverberated through the halls amid the gunfire.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg was in his office area on the other side of City Hall and was not hurt.
Mayor Bloomberg said the attack appeared to be “random act” and not terrorism.
Brooklyn Councilman James Davis was wounded, and the NY Times had that up before, but removed it- probably until the family is notified.
My question- How long before both sides of the gun issue try to score points on this tragedy?
