NEW YORK — An unidentified man was killed with a bullet from his own gun early yesterday during a struggle with police in an elevator machine room atop a commercial midtown Manhattan building, police said.
Assistant Chief Michael Collins of the New York Police Department said they believe the man to be a 51-year-old from Brooklyn whose background includes a string of at least 15 burglary and stolen property arrests dating to 1982, according to a preliminary investigation.
