Man fatally shot at Upper West Side construction site, NYPD says

A construction worker fatally shot his former foreman at a Midtown worksite before shooting himself police said

Police in NY were searching for a gunman after a shooting incident at a construction site on Manhattan's West Side on Thursday (Oct 5), in which one person was killed, USA media reports said.

The 44-year-old worker went into a building at 645 W. 59th St., located his former foreman on the 37th floor, and shot him in the head just after 7 a.m., police said at a news briefing.

Officers searching the building found the man dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, on the fifth floor of the site. Authorities say the incident stemmed from a workplace issue in which the shooter had a dispute with the foreman and had been fired.

He then shot himself in the head in a bathroom, police said. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

Perry had reportedly been hinting at his deadly plan a day or two before carrying it out. A 9-mm semi-automatic weapon was found on the scene.

"When I got upstairs, I saw my foreman on the floor, which is a good friend of mine as well", construction worker Robert Pagan told WABC-TV. He got fired two days ago.

Lee becomes 5th major hurricane this season
Wave heights along the shore will increase during the next few days, creating unsafe surf and increased chances of rip currents. Lee briefly strengthened to a Category 3 storm on Wednesday, which made it the fifth major hurricane in the Atlantic this year.

Pagan said he even hugged Perry on the way out of the building Thursday, moments before the man took his own life.

"He's been telling me".

McCormack told the Post that Perry had been arrested twice for assault and once for burglary in the past.

The suspect, who is from Plainview, New York, was sacked for insubordination by Sayers on Monday when he became outraged after being told to redo a wall construction. "He comes in the morning real early, drinks his coffee, smokes his cigarette".

"He's a quiet guy", Greaves said. He never gives nobody a hard time.

"It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to two union brothers today", Local 212 said in a statement, according to the Post.
