Three men have been shot and wounded in midtown Manhattan in an area that is traditionally buzzing with tourists near the Empire State Building and Macy’s.
The shooting happened Sunday afternoon on West 31st Street. The victims were taken to a hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.
The gunman and a companion fled on foot. No arrests have been made.
Neighborhood resident David Markovich says he arrived seconds after the gunfire erupted and saw the three victims lying bleeding on the ground. Markovich says police and ambulances arrived moments later.
