(AmericanProsperity.com) – A trip to one of the most iconic places in the world should be filled with awe and excitement. But, for some visitors to New York City’s Times Square this week, their visit turned out to be quite scary. Three innocent bystanders were shot after an altercation between a few men in the famous square, launching a manhunt to find the shooter.
Just before 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 8, a fight broke out between two to four men in front of the Minskoff Theatre in Times Square. One man pulled a gun and shot at another, but missed and ended up shooting three people nearby. All three victims, including a four-year-old girl, are expected to make full recoveries.
The New York Police Department (NYPD) was unable to arrest the shooter at the time of the incident and has now launched a manhunt to find him:
