Reportedly, he was Jeffrey Johnson, who worked as a designer of women’s accessories for Hazan Imports and was laid off last year.
This morning he shot a former co-worker.
Cops were alerted and this turned into a battle with police, with Johnson aiming fire and the cops shooting back, killing Johnson–though Mayor Bloomberg says they may have also shot passersby in the scuffle.
A horrible mess.
Not very chic.
Sad, sad, sad.
