A HORRIBLE DAY IN NEW YORK CITY, JUST ONE BLOCK AWAY FROM WHERE I WAS.
Cops kill a co-worker slayer in front of Empire State Building: 



The fired worker, Jeffrey Johnson, 58, shot dead a former co-worker on a busy Midtown street and then turned his weapon on police officers right in front of the Empire State Building — and in the ensuing gun battle he was killed and nine pedestrians were struck, some by cop bullets, Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said today.
The 9 a.m. mayhem sent commuters and tourists in a panicked scramble from the jam-packed intersection of 34th Street and Fifth Avenue.
