Brooklyn Councilman James E. Davis was shot and killed at City Hall in Downtown New York City. Mayor Bloomburg was not harmed. The shooter is suspected to be a rival-who's also dead. This happened almost 2 hours ago.

God-as if the Downtown New York City area hasn't seen enough death already.

:crazy:  :glare:  :angry:

Holy sh*t.

This isn't terrorist in nature, is it?

Here in new york, about 10 blocks from city hall.

Subways and busses were shut down for a while, but they reopened.  So far it seems to have been a lone gunman, who has not been caught.

I'm going home without delay...

QT,

The latest I heard is that the gunman is dead, and that he was the rival. Got this off CBS-TV.

Councilman Davis represented my area of Brooklyn. I met him briefly during his campaign. He was a great man and will be missed.

Ditto this afternoon in San Antonio... a guy opened fire at a Century 21 realty place killing two women and seriously wounding a third. He tried to get away by driving up I35 (dumb idea ... they all try it though) and smashed into a tree not to far from the McDonald's in Belton TX I just had a very late lunch/ early dinner at...  (6th Ave, for ya'll from around these here parts) Rumor is that he shot himself, but I don't know for sure. The cops could have shot him.

The capture isn't on the news yet tho.


Aha ... found it ... http://news.mysanant...1029473&xld=180

Found it:

Quote

A New York lawmaker dedicated to stamping out gun violence was shot dead during a City Hall Council meeting on Wednesday by a political rival who was then killed by police, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

Political Rivals Die in NY City Hall Shooting

Quote

At the time of the shooting, Davis, a former police officer, was carrying a gun himself but did not have time to use it in his defense.

Askew was challenging Davis for the Democratic Party nomination in the upcoming city council elections. It was unclear what his motive might have been.

Bloomberg called the incident, "An attack on democracy."
