The shooter originally targeted his former boss. Then the police shot 9 innocent bystanders. LOL! That's the super expensive and super elite police from the West!

NYPD: 9 shooting bystander victims hit by police gunfire

Published August 25, 2012

All nine bystanders caught in the crossfire of a shooting outside New York City's iconic Empire State Building were wounded by two police officers who had never fired their weapons on duty, authorities confirmed Saturday.

Officer Craig Matthews fired seven times and Officer Robert Sinishtaj fired nine times at Jeffrey Johnson on a busy Friday morning in the highly touristed area after Johnson shot a former co-worker to death and then pointed his pistol at them

Based on ballistic tests and other evidence, "it appears that all nine of the victims were struck either by fragments or by bullets fired by police," Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Saturday.

Investigators were trying to piece together what caused Johnson to ambush former colleague Steve Ercolino, a vice president at the company where Johnson was laid off last year.

Police said Johnson hid behind a car and killed Ercolino with five gunshots as he arrived for work. Johnson then walked away before being shot by two police officers who confronted him moments later.

Their encounter was over in eight seconds. The officers, who had been standing nearly close enough to shake hands with Johnson, fired almost immediately.

not exactly the "cream of the cop” when it comes to handling a gun...
rather two poor shots I would say...even Wild Bill Hickok managed 20 shots inside an eight-inch circle at 20 yards...
Wyatt Earp wasn't far behind him...

The NYPD firearms training program is most certainly not the nation's pride...
It takes about 40 muscles to smile, but only 4 to pull the trigger of a decent rifle
