    Gunman Kills 13, Wounds 26 at Binghamton Aid Group for Immigrants - ABC News

    As many as 13 people have been shot dead and another 26 wounded in a shooting rampage inside an upstate New York civic association building that caters to immigrants, according to federal and state authorities.

    According to multiple state law enforcement officials, the gunman entered the one-story American Civic Association in downtown Binghamton about 10 a.m. today and began a shooting spree.


    A senior law enforcement official told ABC News that 13 people were shot dead and 26 wounded.


    Others were believed to be held inside the building as hostages.
    The suspect was described as an Asian male in his 20s, between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall, wearing a bright green nylon jacket and dark-rimmed glasses.


    Officials said the gunman backed his car up to the rear door of the building to block any escape before he went to the front of the building and started to execute people.


    Police officials said two weapons have been found. According to one police report a 9 millimeter pistol was recovered as SWAT team officers entered the building.


    The shooter was still unaccounted for. Officials said the shooter could be hiding or among the dead.

    New York is over crowded. It's called thinning the herd.

    You people are weak. How many people died in the US in car wrecks today? 2-3 hundred?

    Only simpletons react like you do on each televised "tragedy". I'm more concerned about the average citizen that was given a death sentence by being turned down for coverage by some fascist health provider because of some bullshit "previous condition".

    I don't let the media lead me around by the nose like you do.

    I'm sure someone will find a way to blame this on Obama.
