Empire State Shooting: Shooter Never Shot At Police, Nine Bystanders All Shot By Police
The Guardian reports:
Johnson did not fire at police, according to law enforcement, but he did raise his gun. Nine civilians – four women and five men – were shot or grazed by the two officers who shot Johnson dead.
Initial reports suggested the shooter shot the bystanders, additionally it was suggested the cops had “returned fire,” which has also been proven wrong.
One of the shooting victims says police fired “randomly” into the street.
