Designed primarily to track mass shooting incidents this monitor also tracks mass killings and hostage situations. It is, unfortunately, more active than we’d like. Twitter often leads traditional media as these events emerge so this is an excellent way to stay on top of these stories as they break. Please keep in mind that initial “facts” are often incorrect in chaotic events so as events break tools like this are best used to gather the “big picture”.

Another crazed gunman – this time in New York City:
Police say two people, including the suspected shooter, are dead and at least one other person was shot when gunfire erupted outside the Empire State Building Friday morning. At least eight people were hurt in the melee, possibly in a stampede away from the gunfire.
Police responding opened fire on the suspect, killing him, sources said.
A law-enforcement official said the shooting did not appear to be terror-related, and the gunman may have been a disgruntled employee who was fired Thursday from his job inside the building.
