IF AN ARMED CITIZEN DID THIS, IT WOULD BE A NATIONAL SCANDAL: Police officers shooting at what appeared to be an emotionally disturbed man in New York City’s Times Square accidentally struck two innocent bystanders instead, police said today. “When officers approached the suspect, he appeared to reach into his pocket to draw a gun. Two officers then fired a total of three shots, ABC station WABC-TV in New York reported. While they missed the man, they accidentally hit two women instead.”
NYPD’s gun-safety record could use some work.
