Deadly Morning Shooting on Lower Manhattan Street Is Apparent Murder-Suicide: NYPD
An apparent murder-suicide took place on the streets of lower Manhattan Monday morning, two senior NYPD officials with direct knowledge of the investigation tell News 4 New York.
Although it is still early in the investigation, police sources say they believe the incident -- in which a man and a woman in their 40s were confirmed dead -- is domestic in nature.
Police units were seen on the corner of Morris and Greenwich streets, near the Charging Bull statue, as they continued to canvas the area.
Law enforcement sources say that the incident claimed the lives of a man and woman. According to witnesses, man allegedly approached the woman right in front of a subway station around 9 a.m., shot her twice in the head and then turned the gun on himself.
The woman was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene. The man was taken to the hospital where he was also pronounced dead. It was unclear if either lived or worked in the neighborhood.
Devon Williams was walking to work when he came upon the tragic scene.
"To walk up on something like this is very traumatizing and crazy. I would never expect this. Not even in this area," he said.
Additional information was not immediately available.

An unhinged gunman confronted his wife on a Lower Manhattan street Monday and shot her twice in the head in front of horrified onlookers before turning the weapon on himself in a broad-daylight murder-suicide that stunned the city’s usually-quiet Financial District.
Bursts of noisy gunfire sent shocked passersby racing for cover shortly before 9:30 a.m. at Morris St. and Trinity Place in, a business-dominated neighborhood where wanton violence is extremely rare.
The 46-year-old shooter, believed to be from Canada and identified by police sources as Xin Yu, was wearing a hat when he squared up to his 40-year-old wife and shot her two times in the head before blasting himself in the chest, officials said. The woman died at the scene, police said.
A woman told the Daily News she was walking to the Rector St. subway station with her headphones on and didn’t hear the shots, but that did not stop her from trying to help. She said when construction workers got her attention, she realized what happened and called 911.
The mortally wounded shooter was still holding on to the large, menacing semi-automatic pistol, according to the woman, who declined to give her name. She said a pedestrian passing by didn’t want to get involved, so she stepped in.
“I took the gun from his hand while he was still breathing,” the quick-thinking woman told The News. "I just did it just to be safe. I took it really quick and put it on the ground next to my foot.”
Her clever maneuver meant she had to have her fingerprints taken by cops so she could be eliminated as a suspect.
“I just did what needed to be done to make sure no one else got hurt," she said. “I really didn’t think about it.”
Medics rushed the shooter to Lower Manhattan Hospital, where he died.
Streets around the scene near the Hugh Carey Tunnel were closed for hours as police conducted an investigation. Officials said they did not immediately know what led up to the shooting.
The murder-suicide comes as the city grapples with a surge of shootings and homicides, but the Financial District has been largely untouched by the increase in violent crime. The shooting marks the first murder of the year in the 1st Precinct, which covers the Financial District, and the neighborhood’s second shooting of the year.
The precinct saw just one homicide in the same time frame last year.
Overall, the city has seen 373 slayings across the five boroughs this year as of Sunday, a more than 33% increase from the 280 murders during the same timeframe last year. Shootings have nearly doubled, with 1,276 through Sunday, compared to 653 last year.
