Police Shoot Man in Times Square--and Tourists Get It All on Tape
The man had a knife and police pursued, shot and killed him (with many shots)--as tourists and others in midtown NYC jockeyed for positions and even ran after the chase to take photos and video (some of it seized by cops). NY Daily News has this more graphic tape, with bystander saying "not a justified kill at all--they shot him in the back." NY Post has a different video.
