Security guard critical after shooting at NYC government building

A MAN has opened fire at a Federal building in New York City.

It’s believed a man, aged in his late 60s, walked up to a security line at the immigration office before pulling out a gun.

A security guard was shot and has been rushed to hospital in a critical condition.


The man was then involved in a shoot-out with other security guards outside the building in SoHo, before turning the gun on himself.
