It was another bizarre “spree shooting” that didn’t make any sense. A disgruntled employee murders a co-worker on the crowded streets of NYC. Then flees the scene and encounters law enforcement. He is shot and killed in a hail of gunfire by law enforcement. Then we are told that the perp was actually a spree shooter and shot nine other people, even though his gun only held eight bullets total.
Mayor Bloomberg was salivating at the thought of a spree shooting he could use to justify more gun bans. He denied that any of the nine mystery victims had been injured by police fire.
Now the truth has come out. Two police officers fired a total of 16 times. The nine mystery victims were wounded by bullets, or bullet fragments from the 16 shots fired from the two officers.
