Was there a particular reason there were reporters there? Was a press conference in progress?

Were these shots fired within the building, or out the windows? I mean, where were the cops when they were shot? Anyone know?

Gunshots Heard At City Hall

(Lower Manhattan-AP, July 23, 2003) — Gunshots rang out Wednesday afternoon at City Hall, apparently coming from the second floor of the building in Lower Manhattan.

The shots, fired shortly after 2 p.m., sent reporters in the press room diving for cover beneath their desks. It was unclear if anyone was injured when about a dozen shots rang out.

(07-23) 11:23 PDT NEW YORK (AP) --

Shots rang out Wednesday afternoon at City Hall, sending reporters in the press room diving for cover beneath their desks.

The mayor was in his first floor office and was not harmed, said his spokesman, Edward Skyler.

The shots were fired shortly after 2 p.m., apparently on the second floor of the building in lower Manhattan. It was unclear if anyone was wounded when about a dozen shots rang out.

Police officers, including some in riot gear, were seen running across the plaza in front of the building once the shooting stopped. It was not immediately known if the shooter was in custody.

The City Council was holding a meeting on Wednesday, but it was unclear if the shooting was related to the session.

You mean the law against killing people, and the law prohibiting handguns did NOT keep this criminal from shooting people? Not possible! We need more gun laws. If we outlaw guns this could never happen!

Makes the line "If guns are outlawed (in NYC) only outlaws will have guns (in NYC)." ring true.

There is a press room at City Hall, and the local media have reporters assigned to covering local government. So there are probably always some reporters in City hall during regualr business hours in case something comes up.

Being the NYC City Hall, I assume that there are always some reporters hanging around...

I should use a spell checker but I often do not because of other things running and my desire sto simply post. The worst errors are when I put down something spelled right but otherwise wrong becuase I wrote say yards instead of feet.
