RUSH HOUR HORROR: Shooter in a suit with a briefcase opens fire near Empire State Bldg., at least 2 deadA cold-blooded killer was gunned down by police Friday morning after he pumped two bullets into a man outside an entrance to the Empire State Building, cops and witnesses said.
Seven other people were wounded when the gunfire erupted shortly after 9 a.m. on the crowded rush hour sidewalks outside the iconic midtown skyscraper.
The shooting was apparently sparked by a dispute between co-workers at a business located inside the Empire State, sources told the Daily News.
Construction worker Chris Ogden was working on a scaffold above the building’s 33rd St. entrance when he watched in disbelief as the gunman — in a suit and carrying a briefcase — opened fire.
“He shot the guy in the head,” said Ogden, 23. “The guy went down. He took a second shot when he was down.”
The well-dressed shooter then “walked down the block, like nothing was happening, real casual,” Ogden said. “We were screaming from the top, ‘It’s the guy in the grey suit!’”
