Easter Gunfire In Times Square NYC

Four people were shot and 54 were arrested in New York’s Times Square late Sunday night in an Easter melee some fear was gang-related.

Hundreds of New York City police officers worked to contain the violence, making dozens of arrests and stopping pedestrians to look for weapons, the New York Post reported. One police officer was injured in the knee as he tried to stop the ruckus. A couple of hours later, two more women were shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, The Associated Press reported.

Ironic, considering how strict gun laws in NYC are.

Since Easter violence seems to be a yearly occurrence in New York City’s Times Square, it would be socially responsible for the tourist information places to warn visitors.  My guess is they don’t though.  Getting shot would sure put a damper on the rest of a persons holiday.
