Officers fatally shot; NYPD says they helped avoid more bloodshed
NEW YORK — The streets of Greenwich Village were crowded with people enjoying one of the first warm evenings of the year. Andy Paul was outside Lion's Den, a nightclub where his hard-rock band was about to perform.
Then he saw the man with the gun.
"He was running this way putting a new clip in," the 28-year-old singer said Thursday, a day after the rampage. "He turned around, firing at the cops."
