New York police fired on a man who was acting erratically Saturday night at a busy midtown intersection in Manhattan, wounding two bystanders, according to social media and news media reports. “OMG just witnessed NYPD gun down a pedestrian in Times Square,” Kerri Ann Nesbeth, a witness to the shooting, wrote on Twitter. She posted a photo of a man, in blue jeans and a white T-shirt, sprawled on his back on the sidewalk, blood apparently staining the fabric around his right knee.

A man who shot to death a former colleague in midtown Manhattan and then took aim at police never fired at the officers before they gunned him down in a hail of bullets that also wounded nine bystanders outside the Empire State Building. The New York City police commissioner, Raymond Kelly, said Saturday that three of the pedestrians suffered bullet wounds and the others “were struck with fragments of some sort” as a result of the two officers' shooting at Jeffrey Johnson after he pointed his .45-caliber handgun at them.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein has recommended Jeffrey W. Johnson, a 39-year-old federal magistrate, to become a U.S. District Court judge in Los Angeles. If nominated by President Clinton and confirmed by the Senate, Johnson would raise to four the number of African Americans serving on the Los Angeles-based District Court bench. About 30 judges are assigned to the district, which stretches from Orange County to San Luis Obispo County.

NEW YORK -- The clear sunny Manhattan morning was perfect for taking in the view from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. As the Midtown neighborhood buzzed during rush hour Friday, tourists lined up to enter the skyscraper, and merchants began opening their shops.  One of those shops is Hazan Imports, and one of the people who showed up at its door was Jeffrey Johnson. But Johnson wasn't there to work or to shop. Police say he was there to seek revenge for having been fired a year earlier, and the picture-perfect morning quickly turned to chaos as Johnson pulled a .45-caliber handgun and began shooting, with police firing back.

NEW YORK -- Jeffrey Johnson, who police identified as the gunman outside the Empire State Building, was described by neighbors as a quiet man with a strict morning ritual: Dressed in a suit with a New York Times tucked under his arm, he would walk around the corner and return shortly after with a takeout McDonald's bag.  “Seven days a week, he would leave between 7:30 and 8 in the morning, come back 20 minutes later, and go into the building, always...

When the president of California's oldest nonprofit child welfare agency entertained his employees, he took them to Fleur de Lys, Chez Panisse and other fine restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area. When James T. Spradley Jr. traveled from his home in San Francisco to Los Angeles, he often flew first class and had a car at his disposal.

Los Angeles Times NEW YORK - Each morning, Jeffrey Johnson would put on a suit, leave his Manhattan apartment, and walk to a nearby McDonald's to pick up breakfast. Sometimes he would greet a neighbor and pet her dog along the way. Friday seemed no different to those familiar with Johnson's ritual, but this time, he did not return to his apartment with breakfast in a bag. Instead, he headed to Midtown Manhattan, to his former employer's shop near the foot of the Empire State Building, and shot an ex-colleague repeatedly in the head, police said.

Los Angeles Times Publisher Jeffrey M. Johnson issued a conciliatory statement Wednesday in an apparent attempt to smooth over a week-old fight with the newspaper's corporate parent. In an e-mail message to Times employees, Johnson stressed common ground with Tribune Publishing President Scott C. Smith and a need to have the Los Angeles newspaper and the Chicago media conglomerate "working together" to improve the company's performance.

John P. Puerner announced Tuesday he would step down as publisher of the Los Angeles Times to take what he called a "self-imposed career break," and Tribune Co. promptly named his longtime protege, Jeffrey M. Johnson, as publisher. Johnson ascends to the top post at a newspaper that by many accounts thrived journalistically but stagnated financially during Puerner's five-year tenure, which began shortly after the Chicago-based media conglomerate bought out Times Mirror Co. in 2000.
