Times Square Shooting

Filed in Gather News Channel by on December 10, 2009 0 Comments

The Times Square shooting occurs at a time when many of us start to think of spending New Year’s Eve at Times Square.  The Times Square shooting happened today during a crackdown on the sale of counterfeit goods by street vendors.

The Times Square shooting involved a police officer and a fleeing suspect.  USA Today reports the police officer was investigating the sale of counterfeit CDs and the suspect fled.  It is reported two shots were fired and one hit the suspect while the other broke a window.  It seems the Times Square shooting was fatal.

As we solemnly consider the Times Square shooting today, we also remember Times Square New Year’s Eve celebrations.  Here is footage from Times Square New Year’s Eve 2009, compliments of YouTube:
