A gunman shot four people and took a hostage in a downtown skyscraper Friday, then was killed after police fired at him, authorities said.
The shootings in the 38-story Citigroup Center, which also houses a train station, sent office workers running from the building and stranded rush-hour commuters.
Three victims were hospitalized in critical condition and the fourth was stable, fire department spokeswoman Eve Rodriguez said.
The gunman, armed with a snub-nose revolver, knife and hammer, shot the four over "several minutes," police Superintendent Phil Cline said.
