NEW YORK (AP) — Police say two bystanders were wounded during a police shooting on a crowded street in midtown Manhattan.
It happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue near the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
Police say officers saw a man on foot weaving erratically through traffic and sometimes blocking vehicles. After approaching him they say the man reached into his pocket as if grabbing a weapon, and two officers fired shots.
Police say they missed him, but a 54-year-old woman was struck in the knee, and a 35-year-old woman was grazed in the buttocks. Both were taken to a hospital, but police say neither had injuries considered life threatening.
Police say the man was subdued with a Taser and taken Bellevue Hospital.
No other information was immediately available.
