Injured count started at 3-4, is now up to "at least 10" (CNN). Only known dead thus far is the shooter, though one news organization has reported at least 2 dead.
Per mcovente below:
Brooklyn now watching WPIX (channel 11)This is obviously an ongoing story, the details will clear up very soon. Thanks to all in NYC who are posting the local coverage, I suspect it's more likely to be correct than national sources.
They are reporting 2 dead now, also says shooter is dead, but not sure if shooter is included in the 2 dead or the 2 are separate people.
Several rumors right now. One is that this is a robbery gone bad. New one by ctexrep
Now they are reporting there were shots fired inside the ESB and outside. There are also hearing gunman may have been someone who was fired today. Also are reporting 5 to 10 potential victims.Update x3
