NEW YORK - A laid-off women's accessories designer shot a former co-worker to death in front of the Empire State Building, authorities said, causing a chaotic showdown with police Friday in front of one of the world's best-known landmarks. Police killed the suspect, and at least nine others were wounded, some possibly by police gunfire, city officials said. Some of the wounded were grazed by bullets and others hit directly, but all were expected to survive, officials said. The gunshots rang out on the Fifth Avenue side of the building about 9 a.m., a time of day when the sidewalks around the building are packed with pedestrians, and merchants were opening their shops.

As to Tasco's assertion that Evans got $1 million for the Maria Santos Medical Office, you've been sadly misinformed. Gov. Rendell was the one who helped me secure the $1 million for my district.
