A disgruntled worker stalked a colleague down a Midtown street, shot him dead and then turned his weapon on random pedestrians outside the Empire State Building killing at least one innocent bystander and shooting up to seven others before he was cut down by a cop on foot patrol, sources told The Post.
The gunman followed his victim down 33rd Street before opening fire outside Legends Bar. the sources said.
With his target dead, he then headed over to the Empire State Building and did the unthinkable unleashing a fusillade of shots in the heart of the morning rush on a street loaded with pedestrrans.

Construction worker Chris Ogden was working on a scaffold above the buildings 33rd St. entrance when he watched in disbelief as the gunman in a suit and carrying a briefcase opened fire.
He shot the guy in the head, said Ogden, 23. The guy went down. He took a second shot when he was down.
The well-dressed shooter then walked down the block, like nothing was happening, real casual, Ogden said. We were screaming from the top, Its the guy in the grey suit!
Well Bloomturd is going to start screaming in 5,4,3,.....
Good thing they had strict gun control in place to prevent this sort of thing. Too bad law abiding citizens were left at the mercy of someone who so blatantly, and so obviously broke the gun ban Law!
The Post & Mayor Bloomberg have set a speed record in politicizing this shooting.
Who is going to cover this one Barry or Moochelle ?
Good thing New York has strict gun control laws or someone might have gotten shot.
Well, this totally ruins An Affair to Remember and Sleepless In Seattle. :-(
Screaming "the Tea Party" no doubt.And ABC will run with that.
its the obama way of doing things...but if he was a Liberal it will be kept very low key and quiet...
—Well Bloomturd is going to start screaming in 5,4,3,.....—
Too late. He did in the article...
Just watch...much later it might come out.
What is wrong with these wack-o liberal democRATS in New York?
Why are they always shooting innocent conservatives?
Crazy idiot libs.....
The guy is a union construction worker in NYC. Does that ring of TEA to you? Besides, if he had Built It, that would have been in the headline.
UNPOSSIBLE! NYC is a police state, and it is illegal to carry a gun unless you have one of them fancy permits, which are harder to find than a virtuous woman on 5th Avenue!
“cut down by a cop on foot patrol” (with a GUN!)
Per a policeman speaking to FOX news; the shooting happened in an office building 10 W 33rd street, but not the Empire building. He shot his manager. The shooter designed ladies handbags. The shooting on the streets was a gun battle between the man who was trying to escape cops who were following him.
How did he get a gun in NYC?
This was a one-on-one assassination. This was not a crime of momentary passion, it was premeditated and carried out in almost cold blood. The flight and spray of gunshot against other unarmed pedestrians was probably because of realization that things had gone wrong, in an effort to commit suicide by cop, a not uncommon way to avoid arrest and indictment.
