Mystery gunman targets New York luxury high-rise

BBC News

Police are investigating two incidents in which gunshots were fired at a luxury apartment building in Manhattan in the span of less than 48 hours.

No residents were hurt in the seemingly random shootings, in which bullets crashed through windows into two flats.

According to New York media, the bullets may have been fired from a rooftop or balcony across the river.  

“I’m petrified for my life,” resident Ilene Epstein told the New York Post, which first reported the shootings.

“I moved into this apartment because of the river. I have beautiful views,” said Ms Epstein, a 55-year-old real estate agent who has a flat facing the East River.

“I’ll move out of my building before I walk around with a bullet-proof vest.”

The apartments at One East River Place were hit by gunfire late on Thursday night, and then again on Saturday, less than 48 hours later, police tell BBC News.

New York Police Department Police (NYPD) spokeswoman Carrie Reilly confirmed to the BBC that both incidents were being investigated as cases of reckless endangerment.

In both incidents, the victims were awoken by the sound of their glass windows breaking.

Police later recovered bullet fragments from the flats, which are on the 14th and 32nd floors of the 50-storey rental building.

According to local network Pix 11, residents are now using plywood boards to shield their apartments from incoming bullets.

According to local media, investigators are looking into the possibility that the shots were fired from Roosevelt Island, across the river.

One resident told the New York Post: “I’m paying close to $10,000 (£7,700) per month in rent so I can use the fitness centre and be shot in the head in my apartment.”

    “I’ll move out of my building before I walk around with a bullet-proof vest.”

    Yeah because a sniper might just shoot for center mass.
    I heard it was a .38 and had to scratch my head as to how it could make it there from the other side of the river.
    Also this goes to show you how well that shot tech they have in nyc works.

    “Rents in the targeted building start at $7,000 a month for a two-bedroom apartment. On Tuesday, police were spotted inside trying to figure out exactly where the bullets came from. It’s believed the weapon used was a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver.

    Former DEA special agent David Katz said even at a long distance a .38 caliber handgun can be deadly.”


    A .22 can be deadly if you know WTF you are shooting for at those distances 😉

    you have no idea lady

    and ..she gets driven over by an ala snack bar at a street fair , or steps off the curb as a bus rolls by

    I actually wonder how much inertia was left in that bullet after it traveled as far as it did and than penetrated the thick glass of a high rise

    Pot shots at Manhattan kikes on the East River? Wouldn’t it be satisfying to see this whole building fall into its own footprint at freefall speed?

    Not unless you have double insurance.
