The location took place at 34 West 31st Street, outside a Hyatt hotel and a small liquor store and is near Herald Square and the Empire State Building, but thankfully there were no panicked crowds on this sidestreet location. Police are following up on information to try and find out the cause of the dispute. Eyewitnesses reported seeing two men fighting just before the sound of about four gunshots. Two suspects are wanted after fleeing toward Fifth Avenue after the shooting. Two of the three victims shot appear to have been bystanders. All three victims are in stable condition and were described as follows: A 43-year-old man with a shoulder wound, a 25-year-old man with an arm wound, and a 29-year-old man with a wound to the back.
