Police commissioner calls fatal shooting in NYC's Greenwich Village an anti-gay hate crime

Police say a gunman used anti-gay slurs before fatally shooting a 32-year-old man in New York City's Greenwich (GREN'-ich) Village.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Saturday that the shooting, which occurred just after midnight, appears to have been a hate crime.

Kelly says the gunman was seen urinating on the street outside a bar. He says the man went into the bar, made anti-gay remarks to the bartender and showed the bartender that he was wearing a holster with a silver pistol.

Kelly says the gunman then confronted the victim and a companion on the street and asked if they were "gay wrestlers."

Kelly says the man shot the victim in the face. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The names of the victim and the suspect were not immediately released.
