Several shot outside Empire State Building

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say at least four people have been shot outside the Empire State Building and that the gunman is dead. A witness said the shooter was firing indiscriminately.

The shooting happened about 9 this morning at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue.

Police say as many as 10 people were injured, but it is unclear how many of them were hit by bullets.

A law enforcement official said the shooting stemmed from a  workplace dispute. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

Federal officials said the shooting isn't related to terrorism, and a guard at the landmark said it didn't involve the parts of the building where tourists gather to visit the skyscraper.

Aliyah Imam told Fox 5 News that she was standing at a red light when a woman standing next to her fell to the ground. She says the woman was hit in the hip. She says the gunman was "shooting indiscriminately at people."
