One Killed As Gunfire Erupts At NYC Federal Building: Officials

One person was killed and another was critically wounded after gunfire broke out at a federal building in Lower Manhattan on Friday, New York police and fire officials said.

The shooting, which took place at a building that houses an immigration court, resulted in a single fatality at the scene, a spokesman for the Fire Department of New York said.

The wounded person went into cardiac arrest and was rushed to a hospital, the spokesman said.

Police would not provide any information about the victims.

One of the people who was shot was a security officer at the building, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing an unnamed law-enforcement official. The suspect in the shooting is believed to have then committed suicide with the same weapon, it said.
