Two Women Shot By Police In Times Square
Two bystanders were shot when police attempted to shoot a man who appeared to be trying to get hit by vehicles and pretended to pull a weapon on officers.
The NYPD released a statement:
"The male was blocking traffic and appeared to be attempting to be struck by vehicles when the officer attempted to take him into custody. The male eluded the officer, and when additional officers responded to the scene, the male put his hand in his pocket and then took it out, simulating that he was shooting at the officers."
