NEW YORK (AP) — A laid-off clothing designer fatally shoots an executive at his former company outside the Empire State Building, setting off a showdown with police. Officers killed the gunman and at least nine others were wounded, authorities said.

The gunshots rang out on the Fifth Avenue side of the building at around 9 am, when pedestrians packed sidewalks and merchants were opening their shops.

Here are some of the images of the chaotic showdown.
