All NYC Bystanders Were Shot By Police
Police appear to be at fault for all nine people injured during the recent shooting incident in the shadow of the Empire State building, says NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly.
“It appears that all nine of the victims were struck with either fragments or by the bullet fire by the police,” Kelly said to journalists Saturday.
Stray gunfire split flower pots and other nearby objects as two police officers opened fire chasing Jeffrey T. Johnson, who is suspected of shooting to death his former co-worker minutes earlier. Before Johnson himself was killed by police, three by-standers were struck by officers bullets, with four more receiving injuries from ricocheting fragments, Kelly explained.
