UPDATE Suspect arrested--cops find assault weapon in his home (he had served ten years in prison).
Earlier: Now labeled "hate crime"--man shouts gay slurs, kills man--near the Stonewall in Greenwich Village. Updated here. It was a chaotic scene that involved a suspect who had seemingly been out
looking for trouble, two unsuspecting men who had the misfortune of
encountering him and a wild police chase that ended with the suspect
being taken into custody on the corner of West Third and MacDougal
Streets as scores of clubgoers and bar hoppers looked on in shock."
