Police lean over a sheet covered body on Fifth Avenue as they investigate a multiple shooting outside the Empire State Building, Aug. 24, 2012, in New York. New York City officials said the gunman was dead. A witness said the gunman was firing indiscriminately. The shootings occurred just outside the city's iconic skyscraper, a massive tourist attraction, at the height of the summer travel season and just after the morning rush hour. The intersection at the heart of midtown Manhattan was quickly shut down. The FBI also responded to the scene and said that there is "no initial connection to terrorism."
