Topic: Jeffrey Johnson
Police found books on fighting skills and ammunition at the apartment of Jeffrey Johnson, the man killed in a police shootout at the Empire State Building Friday. Johnson had left his keys with his landlord Friday, and did not plan to return.
The police said ballistics indicated that all nine people wounded in Friday's gun battle outside the Empire State building were hit by police bullets.
The deadly shooting near the landmark Empire State Building early Friday may be workplace-related, with a laid-off worker apparently targeting his former boss. Such violence is recurring, but it did not escalate after millions lost their jobs during the Great Recession.
Jeffrey Johnson allegedly killed a co-worker with a .45-caliber pistol. Then, Johnson, a laid-off women's accessories designer, was killed in a shoot out with police outside the Empire State Building.
