2 bystanders wounded in Midtown Manhattan shooting

NEW YORK – Police say two bystanders were wounded during a police shooting on a crowded street in midtown Manhattan.

It happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue near the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Police say officers saw a man on foot weaving erratically through traffic and sometimes blocking vehicles. After approaching him they say the man reached into his pocket as if grabbing a weapon, and two officers fired shots.

Police say they missed him, but a 54-year-old woman was struck in the knee, and a 35-year-old woman was grazed in the buttocks. Both were taken to a hospital, but police say neither had injuries considered life threatening.

Police say the man was subdued with a Taser and taken Bellevue Hospital.

No other information was immediately available.
