Like a page out of a horror story, two men were shot around 11 PM while ice-skating at Bryant Park in the middle of Manhattan, last night.
Even though they are both still alive thankfully, one of the victims was shot in the back, and the other was hit in the leg.
A witness, who was eating dinner at one of the park’s restaurants, told the press:
‘People just fell on the floor because they heard a gunshot and they had ice skating skates on so they couldn’t run.”
‘People were scared they didn’t know what was going on,’
“We didn’t know anything. The shooter could’ve been a lunatic with a machine gun.”
A young woman believed to be a victim’s sister was heard exclaiming:
‘My brother ‘just got shot in front of my face.’
Someone also told the NY Times that he saw a man go up to one of the skaters in the rink, pull out a gun, and shoot him.
We pray for the victims of this shooting and hope this gunman is found.
