I’m still in shock. I just witnessed this guy get killed by the police!!!!! We were having dinner on the sidewalk at Bamboleo at Bleeker and Thompson in Manhattan
(update, Bamboleo’s actually Bleeker and Sullivan, sorry) and this guy
with a briefcase gets stopped by a cop, he punches him in the face and
takes off running. within seconds there was a torrent of gunfire, at
least 100 shots, some were definitely automatic weapons. The guy falls
dead on the ground right across the street in front of the deli.
Fucking crazy! Everyone in the restaurant ran to the kitchen and hid
until the firing stopped. My heart is still pounding, I’m writing this
from my Tmobile MDA in a cab home.
Update: Finally a major media outlet has picked up the story:
