Details are still coming in, but at least two people are reported dead after a shooter opened fire near the Empire State Building in New York City. At this time, there is no reason to suspect that the incident has any link to terrorism. Still, considering the city in which it took place, it’s hard not to make that connection in your head.
Different media outlets are reporting different information, but it sounds like there are victims who were shot at two separate locations near the Empire State Building. There are said to be ten shooting victims, two of whom have died already.
The shooter was reportedly shot dead at the scene. Whether this was by police or by his or her own hand is still unclear.
