NEW YORK (AP) — Police say an employee at a Home Depot store in Manhattan argued with a co-worker before fatally shooting him and then killing himself.
It happened around 2:45 p.m. Sunday at 40 W. 23rd Street. NYPD Capt. Steven Wren said the employee came into the store and exchanged words with another man before pulling out a gun and shooting him multiple times.
The shooter then shot himself in the head. It was unclear what the argument between the men was about. A gun was recovered at the scene.
Police said the victim was a 38-year-old man. The shooter was 31 years old. No identifications were released.
Wren said there were about 70 employees in the store, but no other injuries.
Home Depot spokesman Stephen Holmes said the company was “deeply saddened.”
