Yesterday afternoon, a security guard was killed at a Manhattan federal building after a gunman opened fire on the premises. After shooting the guard, he then turned the gun on himself.
According to ABC News:
The incident unfolded after the gunman walked into the lobby of the building on Varick Street around 5 p.m., Chief James O’Neill of the NYPD said.
As the gunman approached the metal detector, he immediately pulled out a gun and shot a security guard at close range, said O’Neill.
The gunman then went through the security area and, after he encountered another employee, he shot himself, O’Neill said. The gunman died at the scene.
The guard, identified as 53-year-old Idrissa Camara, was immediately taken to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Authorities say Camara stayed an hour past shift. As far as the shooter, police have disclosed that he was a 68-year-old man from Fort Lee, New Jersey.
