NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man walked into a Brooklyn building Monday morning and opened fire before shooting himself dead, in one of at least two more shooting incidents as a violent weekend of shootings across New York City has spilled into Monday.
As CBS 2’s Emily Smith reported, the latest incident happened shortly after 11:15 a.m. Monday at C&A Ironworks at 13th Street and Hamilton Place, on the cusp on Gowanus and Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Police said a man walked into a yellow brick building and fired shots at employees before ultimately shooting himself. Witnesses said it was a miracle more people were not injured because the building was packed at the time.
Employees at C&A said a man was wearing a T-shirt and a fishing hat when walked in looking for a job, WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported. When he went into the manager’s office, shots were fired, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.
“Just pointed the gun and started shooting,” employee Zymitri Tabkin told Jones. “I ran and I just went from the shop and I called the police.”
