Two bystanders were shot by New York police officers in Times Square on Saturday night as they opened fire on a mentally disturbed suspect.
Shots were reportedly fired near New York’s Times Square on Saturday night, injuring at least two people in the popular tourist spot.
Witnesses said police were responding to reports of a 35-year-old man acting strangely at 42nd Port Authority, when two women were caught in the cross fire.
The women were taken to hospital after being shot in the leg and buttock, in an incident between 42nd Street and 8th Avenue.
One of the women, who was using a walker, appeared to have been shot in the knee. She was pictured laying on the sidewalk, with blood seeping through her jeans.
CBS 2 reported that a second woman was also grazed by a bullet just after 9.30pm.
Early reports appeared to indicate that police had been called to reports of an ‘agitated’ man who was walking in the traffic and ‘flailing his arms around’.
Police are then said to have fired three to four rounds, two of which hit passers by. The man they were originally trying to reach has been taken into custody.
A 35-year-old woman was shot in the right leg and a bullet grazed the buttocks of a 54-year-old woman, according to the Daily News.
