It’s all happening in midtown this morning. While the details are at the ‘breaking news’ stage, the number of helicopters in the sky are a dead giveaway. By the time I walked over to the next block, fifth avenue was taped off from 35th past the Empire State Building, and the talk was that a number of people had been wounded, and the gunman shot dead by police. It always amazes me how quickly the police descend and defend. Shootings are not an ‘only in New York’ experience, but I would say the speed and substance of the police response is. So do not be deterred. Make plans, book your tickets, come to NYC. The city’s finest will be here to make sure you have a safe trip…

We received this news in Oz in our early hours broadcasts – unfortunate for the bystanders!
Another thought – it takes “photo shoots” to a new level (:(((
