Two Bystanders Struck By NYPD Cops Opening Fire On Suspect Near Times Square


” Two NYPD cops opened fire at a deranged man a block from Times Square — as he pretended to point a gun at them — but instead struck a pair of innocent bystanders Saturday night, police said.

The 35-year-old man was behaving wildly in the middle of W. 42nd St. at Eighth Ave. about 9:36 p.m. when he was confronted by the officers, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

The man, who was not identified, was arrested. He was unarmed when he was taken into custody. “
