NEW YORK – Police say an employee at a Home Depot store in Manhattan argued with a co-worker before fatally shooting him and then killing himself.
It happened around 2:45 p.m. Sunday in the posh Chelsea neighborhood. NYPD Capt. Steven Wren said the employee came into the store and exchanged words with another man before pulling out a gun and shooting him multiple times.
The shooter then shot himself in the head. It was unclear what the argument between the men was about. A gun was recovered at the scene.
Police said the victim was a 38-year-old man. The shooter was 31. No identifications were released.
Wren said about 70 employees were in the store, but no one else was injured.
Home Depot spokesman Stephen Holmes said the company was "deeply saddened."
